A 26-year-old Saukville man who was convicted by an Ozaukee County jury of sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl in the back seat of a van while the girl’s mother was giving him a ride in 2020 was sentenced to seven years in prison earlier this month.

Kylar T. Smith was also sentenced by Ozaukee County Circuit Judge Steve Cain to seven years of extended supervision following his incarceration.

The case that was heard by a jury on Jan. 11 dates to June 2020 when, according to the criminal complaint, a Saukville woman who knows Smith said he came to her house and was so drunk he was falling over. She said Smith told her that he had been arrested on sexual assault allegations.

The woman said she didn’t want Smith in her house, so she struggled to load him into her van, then drove him to the nearby home he shared with his grandmother.

The woman’s 10-year-old daughter was in the backseat with Smith, and on the way to his house, the woman said, she heard Smith tell the girl, “Give me your hand” and turned to see his hand on her lower stomach area, the complaint states.

That night, the woman said, she was in bed when her daughter came in hysterical and said she needed to tell her something. The girl said Smith had touched her below her stomach, according to the complaint.

During a forensic interview at the Child Advocacy Center in Saukville, the girl told an investigator that Smith had touched her “crotch area,” and when he did she grabbed his hand and twisted it.

The jury convicted Smith of first-degree sexual assault of a child.

He was charged with the same crime for an incident involving a 5-year-old girl in Port Washington in 2020, but that charge was dismissed during the April 7 sentencing hearing.

While on extended supervision, Smith must maintain full-time employment and absolute sobriety, not have contact with the victim or her family and use computers and access the internet only with approval from his probation officer. He must also register as a sex offender.
