Edgerton man sentenced to 24 years for enticing girls
JANESVILLE—An Edgerton man will likely live out his life in prison after a Rock County Judge on Tuesday sentenced the man for enticing two elementary school aged girls.
Donald E. Jenson, 66, of 14 Maple Court, Edgerton, was sentenced to 24 years in prison and 20 years of extended supervision on two counts of child enticement. Dismissed but read in to the record were charges of first-degree sexual assault and repeated sexual assault of the same child.
According to the criminal complaint, Jenson fondled the girls repeatedly between June 2011 and January 2012. The girls were 5 and 7 at the time. The older girl eventually told her parents of the abuse, and the parents alerted police and social service officials.
The man knew both girls and, and they had been regularly left in his care, the girls’ parents said Tuesday in court.
