A Wisconsin man pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a 6-year-old girl in court on Thursday. The 45-year-old man was convicted of four counts of child enticement and four counts of first-degree sexual assaults of a child. Jeffrey J. Walker has been a registered sex offender since 1992 when he was charged with a first-degree sexual assault of a Brown County child. His trial is set to begin on August 17. The child told her mother that she was playing on a swing set with one of her neighborhood friends when Walker, a neighbor of theirs at a motel on Northland Avenue, called her over and assaulted her.
Walker told police that he spoke to the child but did not touch her. He also said that he saw the child being fondled by another man and thought she was confusing the other man for himself. Walker was convicted of sexual assault and given a 10-year prison sentence on the Brown County charge. He is still in jail on a $250,000 bond.
