CRANDON - A Wabeno man could face up to 100 years in prison after being charged with two felony counts of sexual assaulting a 9-year-old.

Michael George touched and penetrated the girl at least 20 times between last Thanksgiving and Christmas, she told a Sheriff's Deputy.

"A gentleman advised our dispatch center that his daughter reported that she had been touched inappropriately," testified Forest County Sheriff's Deputy Chad Mullis. "I had her use an anatomically correct drawing and she circled the anal region."

The girl told the Sheriff's Deputy the incidents happened when another adult was either asleep or not at home.

George was arrested December 31st.

Forest County Judge Leon Stenz decided there was enough evidence to move forward with the case Wednesday afternoon.

George is back in court next Wednesday.
