A 14-year-old girl says a teen she met online coerced her into having sex.
Justin G. Enders, 18, Waupaca, is charged with child enticement and second-degree sexual assault of a child.
He faces up to 40 years in prison if convicted of sexual assault of a child.
According to the criminal complaint, the girl went online hoping to meet other students and make friends.
On Jan. 8, she told Waupaca Police Officer Wesley Zube that she communicated with Enders online and he invited her to his apartment on Stone Ridge Road. She said Enders told her that his parents were home, so she felt comfortable visiting him.
The girl’s mother told Zube that she was at work at the time. She said the girl told her grandmother that she was going to a friend’s home to help her prepare for a date.
The grandmother dropped the girl off at the apartment building. By the time the girl realized Enders’ parents were not there, her grandmother had already driven away.
Enders and the girl started watching a movie in his room, the complaint says. At first, he merely hugged her. Then Enders allegedly took her clothes off and had sex with her.
She said she was unable to push him off because Enders was much stronger than she was.
Enders reportedly made the girl take a shower prior to calling her grandmother for a ride.
The mother learned about the incident when one of the girls’ friends texted her at work and indicated that something was wrong.
Enders was later taken into custody. Police say he admitted to having sex with the girl but said he thought she was 17 years old.
As of Thursday afternoon, Enders remains in custody. Judge Vicki Clussman set a $2,500 cash bond with conditions that include no contact with the girl or her family, no unsupervised contact with minors and no access to the internet, no texting or emails.
