Man who sexually assaulted child, recorded it to spend 45 years in prison

JUNEAU, Wis. - Judge Brian Pfitzinger on Monday sentenced Benjamin Marx, 31, to 45 years in prison for first-degree sexual assault of a child under 12 and sexual exploitation of a child, according to the Dodge County District Attorney’s Office.

During the investigation, detectives said they found videos showing that Marx sexually assaulted a 3-year-old child and recorded his crime.

Assistant District Attorney Yolanda Tienstra said, “No amount of incarceration is ‘enough’ for committing such a devastating crime, but this sentence will keep the defendant from harming another child for what may be the rest of his life.”

Marx will also serve 35 years of extended supervision, according to the District Attorney’s Office.
