WILLMAR -- An 19-year-old Sparta, Wis., teenager was sentenced Monday to 12 years in prison, which was stayed, 25 years of probation and 363 days in the county jail on a first-degree criminal sexual conduct charge for assaulting two young girls last April.
In Kandiyohi County District Court, Cameron John Waters was ordered to pay a $1,500 fine, register as a predatory offender, submit to a psycho-sexual evaluation, attend sex offender treatment and have no unsupervised contact with minor females without permission from his probation officer.
As part of a plea agreement, another first-degree sex charge was dismissed. Waters was given credit for 242 days already served in jail. The charges were filed after a Kandiyohi County sheriff's deputy was called last May to a Lake Lillian residence regarding a sexual assault. A man there said that Waters had visited their home for a week in April. A 6-year-old girl had told a parent that Waters had sexually assaulted her and an 8-year-old girl and then threatened them that if they told their parents they wouldn't be allowed to play with any of their toys.
A detective and social worker later interviewed the girls, who related the same information.
A Monroe County, Wis., sheriff's detective later interviewed Waters, who admitted assaulting both of the girls.
