Sex Assault Case

By  | 

A Holstein man accused of fondling a nine-year-old girl last month has had his case bound over to Adams County District Court.

Forty-three-year-old Michael W. Kuhlman faces a charge of sexual assault on a child. He is accused of fondling the girl while they were traveling from Holstein to Hastings on Jan. 10.

Court records said Kuhlman also attempted to fondle an eleven-year-old girl who was also in the vehicle, but she fended him off.

Sexual assault of a child is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
