Elkhorn — A jury found a registered sex offender, who is already serving a 44-year prison sentence, guilty Oct. 18 of a felony charge that he repeatedly sexually assaulted the same child.

Theodore A. Mullis, 40, is incarcerated at the Dodge Correctional Institute. When he is sentenced Dec. 16 he faces an additional 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines.

The sexual assaults occurred in Delavan and Darien in 1996 and 1997, according to the criminal complaint.

In Dodge County, Mullis was convicted of two counts of second-degree sexual assault of an unconscious victim, 10 counts of child sexploitation and three counts of possession of child pornography.

According to the state statutes, the sexploitation charge was for either recording or displaying a child engaged in sexually explicit conduct.

In that case, 22 other counts of possession of child pornography and one count of causing a child to view sexual activity were dismissed but read into the record.

When Mullis was sentenced Sept. 3, 2009 he also received an additional 26 years of extended supervision.

The sentence placed Mullis on some form of supervision until 2079, at which time he would be 108 years old.

According to news reports from Sturgeon Bay, Mullis drugged a 16-year-old boy, assaulted him and photographed the attack.

The boy told police he drank a soft drink that tasted strange. Police believe the boy was drugged.

According to the criminal complaint:

On March 12, 2010, a 27-year-old man reported to police that when he was 13 or 14 he was sexually assaulted by Mullis. He said this occurred at least three times in both Darien and Delavan.
