JUNEAU — Felony charges have been filed against a 36-year-old Beaver Dam man who is accused of having sex with two children, ages 12 and 15, on numerous occasions.
Robert Contreras, 36, faces two felony charges of first degree sexual assault of a child under 13, two charges of sexual assault of a child under 16, two counts of sexual intercourse with a child and one count of child enticement. If convicted on all counts, Contreras faces up to 226 1/2 years in prison.
According to a criminal complaint, Contreras sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl on two occasions at her home in Beaver Dam between February and March 2008.
A DNA mixture profile collected from the victim was linked to Contreras, and an analyst with the State Crime Lab later told police there is a 1 in 187,000 chance the DNA came from someone other than Contreras.
Police then interviewed a 15-year-old girl who reported that Contreras had sex with her on numerous occasions while he dated her mother between May 2006 and March 2008.
The girl stated in the complaint that on one occasion Contreras had given her cocaine, and on other occasions he supplied her with alcohol and prescription drugs.
The 15-year-old victim stated in the complaint that she decided to have sex with Contreras on one occasion because she was, "so intoxicated from the drugs and alcohol."
According to online court records, Contreras has been jailed since March 2008 when he was arrested for his fifth offense of driving drunk. He was sentenced in that case to one year in prison and three years of supervision; and he was sentenced in Dane County to an additional year of jail for violating conditions of his probation.
He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on the seven sexual assault charges April 27.
