FDL Man Sentenced On Sexual Assault Charge

A Fond du Lac County judge last Friday sentenced a 44-year-old Fond du Lac man to three years in prison and three years of extended supervision for the sexual assault of a 12-year-old girl. Judge Peter Grimm also ordered two years of probation for Dennis Nickel Jr.  Last December Nickel pled “no contest” to charges of causing mental harm to a child and 4th degree sexual assault. The judge also imposed and stayed 9 months in jail, which would be consecutive to the rest of his sentence if it were to be imposed.
