Bruce Williams – Repeat Sex Offender – committed

Williams was convicted in 1975 for indecent behavior with a 13-year-old girl, in 1987 of attempted sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl, in 1988 for second-degree sexual assault of a woman at a restaurant, and in 1995 for sexual conduct with a 7-year-old boy.

Bruce Williams, 52, of Madison, was found to be a sexual predator this week by a Dane County Jury and was committed for treatment by Dane County Circuit Court Judge C. William Foust.

Williams was convicted several times for sexual assaults and attempted sexual assaults in Dane County, and evidence at this week’s four-day trial showed Williams is a pedophile and is predisposed to engage in acts of sexual violence.

Under Wisconsin law he can now be held for treatment until he is no longer deemed a sexually violent person, and can be kept in treatment for the rest of his life.

Williams was convicted in 1975 for indecent behavior with a 13-year-old girl, in 1987 of attempted sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl, in 1988 for second-degree sexual assault of a woman at a restaurant, and in 1995 for sexual conduct with a 7-year-old boy.

As Williams was ending his prison term in 2005, the state moved to have him declared a sexual predator and a jury agreed this week that he was.

Questions about Williams mental competency delayed the case in getting to trial.

Wisconsin law allow a person to be declared a sexually violent person if he has previously engaged in sexually violent acts and has a mental disease which predisposes him to engage in further sexually violent acts.

David Stamm – Youth baseball coach calls his victim a liar


The former youth league baseball coach accused of child molestation took the stand in his own defense Monday.

David Stamm talked about having sex with the alleged victim, about pornography on his computer and about hiding his own sexuality.

On the witness stand, Stamm said he had sex with the alleged victim on at least four occasions, but he said it was consensual and only happened after the alleged victim turned 18.

Last week, the alleged victim told the jury that Stamm began molesting him when he was 14 years old.

Stamm said that story started going around town and that’s when he offered to pay the alleged victim $5,000 to recant.

Stamm said he’s gay and he hid his homosexuality because if it got out he feared it would ruin a batting cages business he once owned.

“It’s a jock place for guys to come in and talk about jock stuff,” Stamm said. “It’s just a very macho type of store, not the right place for me to be. I wasn’t a hairdresser where people would expect it. I just knew it would ruin the business if it came out.”

Stamm denied molesting the alleged victim and that he inappropriately kissed another 14-year-old who once lived with him.

Stammd did admit to downloading gay pornography on his computer, but it was adult pornography and not child pornography.

Stamm is expected to be back on the stand Tuesday.

If convicted of all charges, Stamm could face 10 years in prison.
