Man guilty of sexually assaulting 2-year-old
ELKHORN - A former Whitewater man could face more than 60 years in prison after being found guilty Tuesday of sexually assaulting a 2-year-old girl.
A seven-woman, five-man jury deliberated about two hours before returning the verdict against 35-year-old Scott L. Anderson. He also was found guilty of two other charges—possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
Walworth County Judge John Race set sentencing for 10:30 a.m. Friday, Jan. 11. Anderson faces a maximum sentence of more than 60 years.
Anderson was charged with sexually assaulting the 2-year-old while sleeping with her Sept. 2, 2011. He lived with the girl’s mother and four of the woman’s children.
