A Superior man who allegedly had sexual contact with a child under the age of 13 waived his preliminary hearing in Douglas County Circuit Court Wednesday, Feb. 24.
Kenneth Wayne Hill, 58, faces one count of first-degree child sexual assault as a persistent repeater. According to the criminal complaint, Hill was convicted in 1984 for first-degree criminal sexual conduct in St. Louis County, Minnesota.
Hill was released from custody at the Douglas County Jail Monday, March 1, after posting $20,000 cash bail. He signed an additional $30,000 signature bond Feb. 16, according to online court records. As a condition of his bond, Hill was ordered to have no intentional contact with minors. He was allowed to have supervised contact with a grandchild.
The reported victim is a child known to Hill. The child indicated during a forensic interview that the sexual contact had been ongoing for about a year, the complaint said.
Hill’s next court appearance was set for March 15. The class B felony is punishable by up to 60 years of imprisonment.
