Pennsylvania Man Sentenced In Dodge County Court

Steven Barlow, 25, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, was sentenced Tuesday (10/26/2021) by Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Brian Pfitzinger to 22 years of prison followed by 12 years of extended supervision for two counts of First Degree Child Sexual Assault.

In June 2018, Officers received a report regarding a sexual assault that had occurred a few years prior. A mother called and stated that her oldest child had disclosed to her that she had been forced to perform oral sex on a male who was staying with the family at the time when the child was about 4. The mother then asked her other child, then 4 or 5, if anything had ever happened with that man, Steven Barlow, and the child provided a similar story in which Barlow offered the child ice cream for an oral sex act. During Barlow’s interview with Detectives, Barlow eventually admitted sexually assaulting the two young children in Wisconsin.

Assistant District Attorney Yolanda Tienstra stated at sentencing, “The parents of the child victims tried to help the defendant by letting him move into their home, and he repaid their generosity by sexually assaulting their children in complete violation of the trust that had been placed in him.”
