WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) - A Wisconsin Rapids man could spend up to thirteen years in prison for having sex with underaged girls. 18-year-old Joseph Karis Jr. pleaded guilty to reduced charges of third-degree sexual assault of a child.
The complaint says he had intercourse with a 17-year-old, a 14-year-old, and two 13-year-olds between 2010 and 2012. Karis also was charged with driving a vehicle without permission in Racine County. The charges were reduced since some of the activity was not forced, and Karis admitted having sex with the girls.
Sentencing is scheduled for September 5th on all charges in Wood County circuit court.
