(WAOW) – A man police say repeatedly sexually assaulted a child is back in court, five years after posting a $5,000 bond and then disappearing.
Pedro Noriega-Avila, 38, who was arrested in April at the U.S.-Mexico border in Arizona, was extradited back to Wisconsin last week, WBAY reports.
In 2016, he was charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 13 and two counts of second-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 16.
Police records show the assaults began in 2009, when the child was just 10 years old, and continued until 2015.
On Tuesday, a Shawano County Court judge set a new cash bond for Noriega-Avila, this time at $500,000.
If convicted, Noriega-Avila could serve up to 60 years in prison.
His next court date is set for Aug. 13.
