WEST BEND, Wis. – A sex offender has been found guilty of soliciting someone to kidnap the mother of one of his victims to get the child to recant his testimony.
Forty-nine-year-old David A. Day of Richfield was sentenced in January 2006 to 25 years in prison for sexually assaulting the 12-year-old boy.
A Washington County jury took less than an hour Thursday to convict him of trying to hire someone to kidnap the boy's mother and kill her unless the child and his father convinced a judge they had lied.
It's the second time Day has been convicted of trying to get someone to silence the boy. In March, he was sentenced in Dodge County to 24 years in prison for trying to hire another inmate at Waupun Correctional Institution to kidnap and kill the boy and his four siblings.
