MONROE - A Belleville man was sentenced Monday to one year in jail and seven years of probation on charges of third-degree sexual assault and contributing to a child's delinquency. Eric C. Wade, 26, Belleville, appeared in Green County Circuit Court on two Class G felony counts of third-degree sexual assault and a Class H felony count of intentionally contributing to a child's delinquency after several incidents in August of 2014 when he had sex with an underage Belleville teenager. Wade said in court that he initially believed the teenager to be 19 years old, although he did not cease his contact with her after she admitted her actual age.
