An Elroy woman has been sentenced to two years in state prison for failure to act/sexual assault of a child.
April Lynn Oldfield was sentenced in Juneau County Court Friday. She was found guilty of two counts of failure to act, each with a sentence of two years in prison and two years and six months extended supervision. The sentences will be served concurrently.
Charges of trafficking a child and child abuse against Oldfield were dismissed in October.
According to a criminal complaint, Oldfield allegedly allowed Elroy resident Joshua Olson, 31, to sexually abuse two children, ages 8 and 11.
On Oct. 31, 2014, a child-protective-services worker notified Juneau County Sheriff’s Detective Tim Andres about possible abuse of two children.
One of the children, a boy age 8, told authorities Oldfield brought different men to her Elroy residence and left them.
“Victim 1 stated the men would do ‘sex things’ with him after paying Oldfield to leave him alone with the men,” the complaint states.
The boy told authorities his mom brought home a “creepy guy” later identified as Olson, and that his mom had sex with Olson in the living room, which the boy overheard from his bedroom.
“Victim 1 stated that after hearing the sex, Oldfield would then leave Olson alone with him despite Victim 1 protesting,” the complaint states.
The boy described encounters with Olson that included anal rape and said “he told his mom but she would not listen.”
The other alleged victim, a girl age 10, described similar encounters with Olson.
“Victim 2 stated that after Oldfield left, he came into her bedroom and sat on her bed,” the complaint states.
The girl also told authorities Olson assaulted her at a home in the town of Wonewoc.
Olson is due in court at 3 p.m. March 8 at the Juneau County Justice Center.
