George Stinson, 75, of Racine, owns Battlefield Live, a laser tag facility at 1325 16th St.
Stinson was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office with first degree sexual assault – sexual contact with a child under the age of 13.
If convicted, Stinson faces up to 60 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint, Stinson was with three girls — a 10-year-old, an 11-year-old and a 12-year-old girl — after school at Battlefield Live on Nov. 18. Stinson allegedly grabbed the 12-year old by the arm, asked to see two of the girls’ stomachs, and touched one of the girls’ breasts. The 12-year-old girl told police the three girls “worked on their bible study homework” in Stinson’s office and later asked the 12-year-old girl if she could be his girlfriend and touched her chest.
He told police that the three girls had been at his business, that he may have made some “inappropriate statements to the children, however, denied touching any of the children.”
Stinson, who used to own General Converter & Assemblers, has been released from custody on a $10,000 cash bond. He has also been ordered to not have any contact with Battlefield Live. An employee at Battlefield Live said that Stinson was actively running the day to day operations of the business, but he is not now.
