An Elroy man charged last month with child sexual assault has more problems.

New charges filed in Juneau County Circuit Court last week allege that Joshua L. Olson, 30, sexually assaulted a girl over a period of years starting in 2005, when she was 15.

According to the new criminal complaint:

Last month, the alleged victim told a detective from the Juneau County Sheriff’s Office she met Olson in 2005 at Mauston High School, where Olson then worked as a dishwasher.

The girl said at a basketball game in December 2005 Olson asked her if she “wanted to get lucky.” The girl left the game with Olson. They went to a secluded area away from school property and had sexual intercourse.

The girl described two similar encounters with Olson in December 2005 in Mauston, at his residence and in his van, and a fourth encounter in Olson’s van in a school parking lot in Mauston in 2006, 2007 or 2008.

The incidents all took place before the girl was 16. The girl estimated she had sexual intercourse with Olson another 25 times when she was 16 and 17.

Olson was charged with four felony counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child and one misdemeanor count of sex with a child 16 or older. Each of the assault charges carries a possible prison sentence of 40 years.

Last month, Olson was charged with three counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child under 12 and three counts of child abuse for allegations that he paid the mother of two children for sex with the children.

The first-degree sexual assault charges each carry a possible prison sentence of 60 years. If convicted of just one of the charges, Olson faces a mandatory sentence of at least 25 years. Olson stood mute to the charges at an initial court appearance Dec. 3.

Olson is in the Juneau County jail on $20,000 cash bond. He is scheduled for an initial court appearance on the new charges Dec. 17.
