Sex offender charged with punching girl


WAUSAU, Wis (WSAU)  A sex offender is facing child abuse charges for allegedly punching a 13-year-old girl in the stomach. 39-year-old Daniel Shave appeared in Marathon County court yesterday, where bond was set at $5,000.

Prosecutors say Shave was a friend of the 13-year-old's family. The girl told Stave to stop stroking her hair and touching her. She hit him with a hairbrush, and he retaliated by slugging her in the stomach. A witness says the girl doubled-over in pain after she was hit. The incident happened Saturday at a home on Jackson Street.

Stave has two sexual assault convictions that date back to 1997, and there are warrants for him in Michigan and Colorado for failing to register as a sex offender.
