Lake Tomahawk man draws prison time on sexual assault case
By Kayla Thomason
River News Feature Writer

A Lake Tomahawk man was sentenced Friday, June 29 to five years in prison on a sexual assault charge.

R.B.A., 53, charged with third degree sexual assault, was also sentenced to five years extended supervision and must register as a sex offender for life.

A first-degree child sexual assault charge was dismissed June 22 but read into the record for purpose of sentencing.

According to the criminal complaint filed Nov. 27, 2017, R.B.A. was accused of sexually assaulting his 11-year-old stepdaughter several times between Aug. 1 and Nov. 19, 2017. The Lakeland Times is identifying the defendant only by his initials in an attempt to protect the identity of the alleged victim.

According to the complaint, the victim told her father she sometimes sleeps with R.B.A. while her mother sleeps elsewhere, and went into detail explaining that R.B.A. touches her inappropriately and has done so on more than one occasion.

According to the complaint, the victim stated she lives part-time with her mother, brother and R.B.A. The residence has two bedrooms, one for the children with bunkbeds and one the defendant and the victim's mother had been using, the girl said. She also stated the reason she started sleeping in R.B.A.'s room was because he was tired of the siblings talking and that's why he moved her to his bedroom.
