SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - A Cedar Grove man, who had sexually assaulted his girlfriend’s daughter for at least 5 years while she was in elementary school and through high school, has been sentenced to prison. 61 year old James Washington appeared recently in Sheboygan County Court and was sentenced to 5 years in prison to be followed by 10 years on supervision. The assaults began in 1995, but the victim didn’t come forward until 2008, when she was 25, after being encouraged by friends. Sheboygan County detectives stayed on the case for two years before Washington finally admitted to the assaults in a recorded phone conversation with the victim. That’s when Washington was arrested and charged.
