Mayville Man Pleads Insanity in Child Sexual Assault Case

A Mayville man accused of making videos showing himself sexually assaulting two young children is entering an insanity plea. The suspect, who we will not identify – is facing four felony counts including First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child under the Age of 12, Incest with a Child, Child Sexual Exploitation, and Possession of Child Pornography. 

He is pleading “Not Guilty” by reason of mental disease or defect. A judge is now ordering a mental evaluation, with the suspect set to return to court in October. He faces up to 165 years in prison if convicted on all counts.
