The Kentucky man charged in 2016 with inappropriately touching a young girl will spend the next 40 years in prison.
Vincent Judd-Rapp, 25, was sentenced Thursday to 60 years – 40 behind bars and 20 under supervision – by Racine County Circuit Court Judge Mark Nielsen after a jury last December found him guilty of one felony count each of first degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 12 and failure to register as a sex offender.
According to the criminal complaint against him, Judd-Rapp was charged in February 2016 after a woman told police her 7-year-old daughter reported that Judd-Rapp had touched her “down there” and digitally raped her while the girl was at a relative’s home. The girl’s mother said the little girl was not prompted to tell her anything. When the mother’s girl asked the relative about it, that person reported that Judd-Rapp said, “If (the woman) calls and says I did something to her daughter, tell her that I didn’t.”
According to a story in The Journal Times, Judd-Rapp was also charged with failing to register as a sex offender in Wisconsin after he was convicted of third degree sexual assault of a child in Kentucky. That conviction required Judd-Rapp to register within 10 days of moving to Wisconsin but by Feb. 10, 2016, he hadn’t done so.
Judd-Rapp will spend an additional three years in prison and another two on supervision for violating the terms of his release from Kentucky, the story continue.
