A registered sex offender is accused of having sexual contact with a young girl outside of a Grand Chute motel. 45-year-old Jeffrey Walker faces four counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child and four counts of child enticement for separate incidents Sunday involving a six-year-old girl.
Court records say the victim was playing on a swing set at the Northern Inn on W. Northland Avenue, when Walker told her to come over to him. They say Walker had sexual contact with her and let her go. He’s accused of later grabbing her by the arm at least three more times, and pulling her to the same area, to do the same thing again.
Outagamie County Court Commissioner Brian Figy set Walker’s bond at $250,000.
Walker was convicted in 1992 of sexually assaulting a child in Brown County, and he would spend the rest of his life in prison, if he’s convicted. Assistant District Attorney Nic Bolz says Walker also faced a sexual assault charge last year, but prosecutors had to drop the case after the victim died. He says DNA evidence tied Walker to the case.
Court records say Walker had been drinking on Sunday, and he was sleeping on a chair outside his motel room when police arrived.
