Eau Claire man pleads guilty to sexually assaulting teen

Eau Claire County (WQOW) – An Eau Claire man accused in a slew of sex crimes pleaded guilty to some of the charges against him.

According to the criminal complaint, the 15-year-old victim told police she had sex with Joshua Weichert twice when he was in charge of the Sons of American Legion, a program for children of the legion members.

Police also said Weichert traded nude photos of his ex-girlfriend for a break in rent, then threatened to send them to more people unless she sent him more photos.

Friday, Weichert pleaded guilty to sexual assault of a child under 16, possession of child pornography and making threats.

He’ll be sentenced in May.
