SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan Falls man will spend ten years in prison for sexually assaulting a teenage girl and threatening to kill members of her family if she told. Judge Timothy Van Akkeren recently sentenced 45 year old Shawn Senkbeil, which will be followed by ten years extended supervision.
Sheboygan Police began a three week investigation this past spring after Sheboygan South High School officials became suspicious that the now 16 year old girl was being abused. The victim told officers that Senkbeil had taken her to his home, where they smoked marijuana and he then groped her. She also said, three years earlier, he raped her in her home while her parents were away.
Senkbeil's sentence also includes drug charges after a search warrant at his residence found a marijuana grow room with eight plants several feet tall.
