A Southeast Wisconsin man who has lived in Hudson on-and-off over the past several months has been charged with multiple counts of sexual assault of a child under 16 years of age.
James M. Eckhoff, 49, is wanted by authorities and faces five felony sexual assault of a child charges stemming from multiple encounters with a 14-year-old girl where he lived, according to a criminal complaint filed on Jan. 9.
- 4 counts of 2nd Degree Sexual Assault of Child - 948.02(2) - Felony C
- 1 count of Repeated Sexual Assault of Same Child - 948.025(1)(e) - Felony C
The encounters allegedly occured between October and December of 2012 while the girl's family members were either asleep or away from home, according to the complaint.
A warrant has been issued for Eckhoff's arrest, and the Hudson Police Department issued a press release last month asking for the public's help in locating him when the investigation was underway.
Anyone with information on Eckhoff's location is asked to call the Hudson Police Department at 715-386-4771.
