Rackow gets nine months in jail
MONROE - A Juda man found guilty of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman in a Juda residence was sentenced Thursday to nine months in jail and four years of probation. James E. Rackow, 49, was charged with a Class G felony charge of third-degree sexual assault and misdemeanor charges of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct and was found guilty due to no contest pleas to all three charges in December. Green County Circuit Judge Thomas Vale handed down a more severe sentence than the sentence of six months in jail and three years of probation that both the prosecution and defense recommended, saying he felt a longer sentence was reasonable given Rackow's offense.
