FDL Man Pleads To Sexual Assault Of A Child Charge

An 18-year-old Fond du Lac man suspected of sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl avoided a jury trial this week, by pleading no contest to an amended charge of 2nd degree sexual assault of a child. Tory Tuinstra was in Fond du Lac County Court for a plea hearing Monday morning. Two other charges were read into the record and dismissed. He was one of three people living in apartments in the 100 block of Ruggles Street that participated in the assault or allowed it to happen. The trial had been scheduled for today through Thursday.
