Amos G. Day

Amos G. Day

A Juneau County man was charged Dec. 22 with four counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child and six other felonies stemming from alleged improprieties with a child.

Amos G. Day, 34, faces possible prison time of 60 years for each of the four assault charges alone.

According to the criminal complaint:

The victim, who is 10, told social workers Dec. 15 that Day had shown her pornographic videos and described various sex acts he performed with her or in her presence.

Day at first denied the victim’s claims in an interview with a Juneau County sheriff’s detective Dec. 19 but then admitted to the acts and provided details and approximate dates.

The victim told authorities the encounters with Day happened “all the time.” The charged acts took place in September 2013, and in February, April and October of this year – all at a residence in the town of Kildare.

The four assault charges against Day, who now lists a New Lisbon address in court records, include one count of intercourse with a person under 12 and three counts of sexual contact with a person under 13.

Day is also charged with two counts of exposing a child under 13 to sex acts, one count of exposing a child to harmful material and three counts of exposing genitals to a child.

Judge John Roemer set cash bond for Day of $50,000 and scheduled an initial court appearance Jan. 21.

Mauston and the small communities that surround it have become infected with sick degenerates like these men. I am outraged by the acceptance that Mauston houses these freaks. They belong locked up or better yet exterminated. Every time I read this paper there is another child being abused, and raped. I think Mauston needs to wake up and take back what was once a safe and lovely place to live. I grew up here, and left 30 years ago. I will never return because of the trash that now is allowed to walk the streets. Juneau County was once a beautiful place. People stand up get involved and take back your towns!
