A Wausau man is in jail after being accused of having an ongoing sexual relationship with a relative for several years.
33 year old Rafael Juarez Gutierrez is charged with incest and repeated sexual assault of a child.
According to court documents, Gutierrez fathered two children with her, one of which was conceived when she was only seventeen.
Gutierrez is also accused of sexually assaulting a second young girl, who claims she was just nine when the abuse began.
He's being held on a $15,000 cash bond in the Marathon County Jail.
He will be back in court on July 30th for a preliminary hearing, when a judge will decide if there's enough evidence for Gutierrez to stand trial.
