Daniel Esh Fisher, 17, Blanchardville, was charged with second-degree forcible sexual assault, false imprisonment, exposing a child's genitals, suffocation and burglary after he entered a Fayette residence at approximately 1 a.m. on April 8 and restrained and raped a female there. Lafayette County District Attorney Katherine Findley said Fisher had walked more than two miles to the victim's residence, knowing the victim's parents would not be there.
