MENOMONIE — A 36-year-old Boyceville man who pleaded guilty in Dunn County Circuit Court to four felony counts related to the sexual assault of a child has been sentenced to 30 years in prison and 10 years of extended supervision.
Mitchell D. Miner, along with his attorney Mandy Lynn Caffee, appeared before Judge Rod Smeltzer for a sentencing hearing April 23.
All together, Miner was charged with 12 Class C felonies, including second degree sexual assault of a child, and eight Class B felonies, including repeated sexual assault of the same child and first degree child sexual assault involving intercourse with a child under the age of 12.
Miner pleaded guilty to four felony counts while 16 other felony counts were dismissed at a court hearing January 31.
Judge Smeltzer sentenced Miner to 30 years of initial confinement and 10 years of extended supervision on each of the felony counts to be served concurrently.
A pre-sentence investigation had recommended Miner be sentenced to 25 years of initial confinement and 10 years of extended supervision on each of the four felony counts to be served concurrently.
Judge Smeltzer also granted Miner credit for 506 days of time served in the county jail.
According to the criminal complaint, one of the victims said the sexual assaults had started nearly ten years ago, and the other victim said the sexual assaults had happened too many times to count.
Miner has remained in the Dunn County jail on a cash bail of $200,000 set in December of 2017.
A Class B felony carries a penalty, upon conviction, of a prison sentence of up to 60 years on each count.
A Class C felony carries a penalty, upon conviction, of a fine not more than $100,000 and/or a prison sentence of up to 40 years on each count.
