Winnebago man sentenced for sex act with minor

United States Attorney Joe Kelly announced that Ricky T. Wolfe, 19, of Winnebago, was sentenced today in federal court of sexual abuse of a minor. Senior United States District Court Judge Laurie Smith Camp sentenced Wolfe to 18 months in prison. Wolfe will begin a five-year term of supervised release following his release from prison.


Wolfe, then 18, engaged in a sexual act with a 13-year-old on the Winnebago Reservation in December 2018. He claimed it was consensual. Minors do not have the capacity to consent and individuals who are 18 or older and more than four years older than a child under the age of 16 violate federal law.


This case was investigated by the Winnebago Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation
