Panel reaches verdict after victim testifies man assaulted her with help from her mom

    An Ozaukee County jury deliberated for less than two hours last week before finding a 44-year-old Fredonia man guilty of sexually assaulting his 12-year-old stepdaughter during an encounter the girl said was arranged by her mother.

    After a day-and-a-half of testimony that ended Wednesday, Feb. 5, the jury returned guilty verdicts on felony counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child and incest with a child by a stepparent.

    The man will face a maximum 65 years in prison when sentenced by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Paul Malloy on March 20.

    The jury acquitted him of one count of child enticement-sexual contact.

    The girl’s 36-year-old mother, who is the man’s wife, faces felony charges of being party to the crime of first-degree sexual assault of a child and failure to protect a child. She was not on trial last week but testified against her husband.

    Shortly after stepping down from the witness stand, and on the same day her husband was convicted, the woman withdrew her plea of not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect. Her case is scheduled to be resolved during a plea hearing on April 9 before Judge Sandy Williams. She faces a maximum 62 years in prison.

    Ozaukee Press is not naming the man or woman to protect the identity of the victim, who currently lives with her biological father in Illinois.

    Now 13, the girl, who was composed and articulate for her age on the witness stand, implicated both her mother and stepfather in the sexual assault.
