A 67-year-old Menomonee Falls man allegedly raped his 9-year-old granddaughter numerous times over the summer and forced her watch pornographic videos with him.
The man, who will not be named by the Sussex Sun to protect the identity of the victim, was charged on Monday, Aug. 25, in Waukesha County Circuit Court with repeated sexual assault of a child, incest and exposing a child to harmful material.
According to the criminal complaint, the man was supposed to be taking care of the victim since June 15 during the week while her parents were at work, usually from Sunday nights to Friday afternoons.
The suspect’s wife also worked often, so he was alone with the girl most of the time, the complaint says.
The victim told a forensic interviewer in the complaint that that her grandfather repeatedly took her clothes off and touched her privates.
She said most of the assaults happened in the man’s bedroom or his unfinished basement, where he forced her to watch pornography with him and once allegedly made the girl perform oral sex on him.
A Child Protective Services agent said in the complaint that he believed the sexual contact between the man and his granddaughter occurred daily.
According to court records, the man posted his $25,000 cash bond the same day he was arraigned and was released on condition that he have no contact of any kind with his granddaughter or her parents.
