BARABOO - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced today that on Friday, October 16, 2009 Dennis D. Lemoine, a Sauk County resident, age 25, was convicted of First Degree Sexual Assault of a 5-Year-Old Child by a Sauk County jury after more than four hours of deliberation on Friday evening.
Lemoine was charged with having sexual contact with the girl at her home on April 23, 2007. The jury trial lasted 4 days. Judge Guy Reynolds presided over the trial.
Judge Reynolds entered judgment on the verdict and revoked bail at the request of Assistant Attorney General Tom Fallon who prosecuted the case.
Lemoine was remanded to the custody of the Sauk County Sheriff pending sentencing. The court ordered that a Presentence Investigative report be prepared to assist the court in determining the sentence.
Lemoine's case was originally prosecuted by the district attorney's office; but upon the request of District Attorney Patricia Barrett, the Wisconsin Department of Justice reviewed the case and agreed to take over the prosecution of the case.
Sentencing is expected to occur in 60 days.
Assistant Attorney General Tom Fallon represents the state in this case.
