A Rixford man convicted of sexually assaulting a young boy will spend 25 to 50 years in state prison.
52-year-old William Tipton made the 6-year-old boy watch pornography then assaulted him.
Tipton is not eligible for early release because of a previous aggravated assault conviction. He’s currently serving a 5- to 10-year state prison sentence on an unrelated weapons charge conviction.
Tipton’s wife, 37-year-old Julie Tipton is facing similar charges. Her trial had been scheduled for August 27, but that did not happen and a new date has not been scheduled yet.
