Sheboygan - Rogelio Cortez Jr., 36, a convicted registered sex offender plans to appeal last month's decision by a judge to sentence him to life in prison without the possibility of parole. Cortez Jr. was convicted for sexually molesting a 10-year-old girl. It became a second conviction for Cortez Jr. that involved another sexual assault of a child. Police arrested and charged Cortez Jr. on April 2011.
Cortez Jr. sexually assaulted the young girl for a period of two years. He began by touching her while she slept and performed sex acts, which later led to abusing and hitting her that included leaving visible marks. The young girl would tell relatives she had fallen and had gotten bruises from the fall, according to court records.
In 1995, Cortez Jr. took advantage of a younger sister and impregnated her. He was later convicted of felony incest and received one year in prison and five years supervision.
He had been a registered sex offender since 1995.
Court records indicate that Cortez Jr. moved into Sheboygan and failed to register as a sex offender from January to March 2010. He was cited 64 times and fined up to $9,000 for violating the city's sex offender ordinance that requires sex offenders to register and seek approval to live within the city limits.
