Rasmussen Receives 265-year Sentence in Child Sex Assault Case

09-Feb-2019

A Fond du Lac man convicted on 44 counts of sexual assault of children and drug charges has been sentenced. Judge Robert Wirtz sentenced James Rasmussen Friday to 203 years in prison and an additional 62 years of extended supervision, making for a total sentence of 265 years. Rasmussen was convicted on the sexual assault counts and charges of delivering drugs to children in November after a multi-week jury trial. Wirtz called Rasmussen’s behavior “monstrous, narcissistic and predatory” at sentencing and said Rasmussen was a denier and “categorically remorseless”. District Attorney Eric Toney said in a statement “while no amount of prison time can change the trauma that the children in this case endured because of Rasmussen’s actions, it is because of the children’s courage to report what happened that allowed for Rasmussen to be held accountable for his actions. Because of their bravery, the children in our community will be better protected. I also hope the court’s sentence serves as a clear message to what happens to those that engage in this monstrous behavior. ” Toney also credits the investigative team in the case for their work – including Fond du Lac Police Detective Camille Vandermolen, ADA Kristen Menzl and ADA J. Foss Davis.
