Iron County man charged with child sexual assault
MERCER, Wis. (WSAW) - A 58-year-old man has been charged after he was accused of sexually assaulting a child more than a decade ago.
Daryll Behnke is accused of having sexual contact with a child starting in 2009, possibly lasting two years.
The alleged victim came forward earlier this year to report the alleged misconduct. Behnke is charged with repeated sexual assault of a child against Behnke.
Remains in custody on a $20,000 cash bond. He was ordered to have no contact with children under the age of 18 unless supervised. In a previous version of this article, WSAW-TV reported Behnke had signed his bond on Aug. 30 and was released. That was incorrect. We regret this error.
Behnke is scheduled to return to court Oct. 3.
