Placeholder Image
DARLINGTON - A Blanchardville man charged with sexually assaulting a child in 2015 was sentenced to two years of probation Wednesday after his charges were reduced. Phillip Alan Hofer, 44, Blanchardville, pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of battery and lewd and lascivious behavior after a charge of second-degree sexual assault of a child was amended at a plea hearing Wednesday. Hofer was charged after an incident in October 2015 when, while he was intoxicated, he reportedly touched the genitals of an underage boy.
