A Neenah man was in Portage Co. Court on Monday to face multiple charges of child sex assault.
Brian Simonick, 20, is charged with first degree sex assault of a child under 13, incest with a child, repeated sexual assault of the same child and two counts of intimidating a witness, all felonies.
According to the criminal complaint, Simonick began assaulting the child when she was six years old, and only stopped when, at the age of 13, she threatened to tell her parents.
Simonick was taken into custody on Mar. 17. Before he was incarcerated he sent messages to several people via text, to include the victim, saying he felt suicidal.
Simonick is being held on $25,000 cash bond. He returns to court for his preliminary hearing on April 4.
