Sex offender receives life

May 03, 2012
ELKHORN — A sex offender who has abused young girls from Texas to Walworth County will spend the rest of his life in prison. On Friday, a Walworth County jury found Chris E. DeMint, 60, guilty of two counts of repeated sexual assault of a child. In this case, his victims were 3 and 5 when the assaults began in 2008. The two girls were assaulted for about two years until police arrested DeMint in 2010. DeMint, of Bloomfield, pleaded not guilty and not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect to the crimes. That means the jury first had to determine whether DeMint committed the assaults and then had to determine whether he was mentally responsible for his action.
