A 41-year-old Saukville man accused of sexually assaulting a girl and her brother in 2011 and 2014 was sentenced to 10 years in prison last week.

Foster E. Braddy was also sentenced by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Sandy Williams to 10 years of extended supervision following his incarceration.

Earlier in March, Braddy, who was charged a year ago with four counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child, pleaded no contest to one of the counts. The other three were dismissed, although two were read into the record, which means that Williams could consider them when sentencing Braddy.

An investigation into the assaults began in October 2020 after Braddy’s female victim, then 16, told a forensic interviewer at the Lakeshore Child Advocacy Center that Braddy had fondled her at his Saukville apartment in 2014 when she was either 10 or 11 years old, according to the criminal complaint.

After that, she said, Braddy began buying her things in an attempt, she believed, to earn his trust.

She said Braddy molested her two more times that year. During one of the assaults, she said, she was so scared she pretended to be asleep, the complaint states.

During the investigation, the girl’s brother, who was 14 at the time of the 2020 investigation, revealed that Braddy had also sexually assaulted him. He told a forensic interviewer that the assault occurred at Braddy’s apartment when he was about 5 years old, according to the complaint.

He said he never told anyone about the assault until he learned his sister had been molested.

Williams ordered Braddy to undergo sex offender counseling and not to have contact with anyone younger than 18 or his victims while on extended supervision.

Braddy must register as a sex offender.
