Tomahawk man found guilty of child sexual assaultSubmitted: 06/22/2018
ONEIDA COUNTY - A Lake Tomahawk man pleaded no contest to sexually assaulting a child.

Robert Aufrere was found guilty of third degree child sexual assault in Oneida County Court Friday. 


Last fall, the victim told police Aufrere would touch the victim's hair, inner thigh, and genitals.

Aufrere was charged with two child sexual assault felonies.

As part of a plea deal, one of the charges was dropped and the other was changed from first degree to third degree child sexual assault. 

Aufrere will be sentenced later this month.
