TOMAH, Wis. (TCD) -- A judge has sentenced a 75-year-old woman to a decade in prison after she was found guilty of 25 assault-related charges in July.
The Monroe County district attorney’s office announced in a statement via the Tomah Police Department that Anne Nelson-Koch was sentenced to 10 years in prison with 15 years of supervised release for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old student at the school where she worked. According to the statement, Nelson-Koch faced up to 634 years in prison with 373 of those years incarcerated and 251 on supervised release.
The district attorney’s office argued for 100 years in prison.
Judge Richard Radcliffe said Nelson-Koch "used her position of power over the victim to meet her own needs, recognizing Nelson-Koch was an authority figure trusted by the victim."
