A sex offender was sentenced in Juneau County Friday afternoon on multiple counts of repeated acts of sexual assault involving three different children.

According to a news release, Neil Becerra, 43, was sentenced to a total of 30 years confinement in the Wisconsin State prison system.

During his trial in June, Becerra pleaded no contest to sexually assaulting a child from ages 4-10 on at least three occasions from 1998-2004; sexually assaulting a 13-year-old on at least three occasions from 2012-2013; and sexually assaulting a third child from ages 7-9 on at least three occasions from 2011-2013.

On the first count of repeated acts of sexual assault of a child, Sauk County Judge Patrick Taggart imposed a 25-year sentence; 15 years of initial incarceration followed by 10 years of extended supervision. 

On the next count of repeated acts of sexual assault of a child, Taggart imposed a 20-year sentence; 10 years of initial incarceration followed by 10 years of extended supervision to run consecutive to the first count. 

On the final count of repeated acts of sexual assault of a child, Taggart imposed a 10-year sentence; five years of initial incarceration followed by five years of extended supervision to run consecutive to the other counts.

While pronouncing the sentence, Taggart stated that “in considering these types of crimes, this is the most aggravated I’ve seen in 21 years” and told Becerra that he “is an extreme danger to children and the public in general.”
