Man receives probation for sex assault

August 30, 2012
ELKHORN — A judge didn't buy a 29-year-old man's story when he said he thought the 15-year-old girl he was having a sexual relationship with was an adult. Although Judge John Race said he didn't believe John J. Baumeister, 526 Franklin Ave., he didn't send him to prison either. Instead, Baumeister was sentenced Aug. 30 to seven years probation, which includes a year in jail with work-release privileges. He will also have to undergo sex-offender treatment and register as a sex offender. Baumeister pleaded guilty June 25 to second-degree sexual assault of a child. The law on this charge prevents a defendant from using a misunderstanding of the victim's age as a valid defense.
