The two must also pay $250 to law enforcement and are required to write an apology letter to the Amish community.

The Schwartz brothers pleaded guilty to two separate counts of third-degree child molestation.

Those charges were eventually reduced to the two counts of third-degree child molestation they pleaded guilty to.
