An initial appearance is scheduled today for an East Troy man charged with forcibly having sex with a 14-year-old girl.

Jonas Pieters, 22, was charged Dec. 20 in Walworth County Circuit Court with two counts of sexual assault of a child younger than 16 years old, first-degree sexual assault of a child younger than 16 by use or threat of force or violence and repeated sexual assault of a child. He faces up to 180 years in prison if convicted on all counts.

According to the criminal complaint, the 14-year-old girl told police Sept. 12 that she and Pieters had sexual intercourse three times between June and September, and, on the most recent occasion, Pieters forced the encounter. The girl said she and Pieters initially had sex at her Barnes Street home in Delavan, and, on the second occasion, had sex in a park down the street from her home, according to the complaint. She said each time she felt pressured and Pieters commented that he would hurt himself if they didn’t have sex, the complaint states.

On the third occasion, the girl said, she was at her boyfriend’s house on Seventh Street in Delavan around Sept. 1 and 2 and was intoxicated after Pieters gave her vodka and juice of some sort, according to the complaint. She said she was in her boyfriend’s room playing video games when Pieters pinned her to the bed, removed her pants and underwear, held her hands above her head and had sexual intercourse with her, the complaint states. She said the encounter ended when they heard a car driving up and people returning to the home, according to the complaint. Afterward, she said, Pieters asked her to drink his drink and she believed it might have had vyvanse – an attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder medication – in it, the complaint states.

Police obtained the girl’s phone and noted she and Pieters continued to have contact, discussing the sexual encounters, professing their love for one another and suggesting they resume their relationship when the girl is 18, according to the complaint.
