3 accused in sexual assault of 6-year-old girl
FOND DU LAC, Wis. — One of three people accused of sexually abusing a 6-year-old girl faces trial next week in Fond du Lac County.
Tory Tuinstra, 18, is charged with repeated sexual assault of a child, exposing himself to a child and bail jumping. Fond du Lac police began investigating the case last August when a citizen expressed concern about the girl’s welfare.
Shane Berg, 41, and Ellen Neumann, 40, are also charged in the case, USA Today Network-Wisconsin reported. A criminal complaint says the girl told investigators she was sexually assaulted beginning when she was a kindergartener last year. The girl also told authorities that Berg owned her.
Court records say Tuinstra told detectives the lifestyle in the house was one of dominant-submissive relationships.
Berg faces a trial in January. No further court activity is currently scheduled for Neumann.
