Christian camp counselor sentenced to 7 years in prison for ‘inappropriately touching’ child

A Wisconsin man was slapped with a 7-year prison sentence after he was convicted of “inappropriately touching” a child while he was a counselor at a Christian camp, the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune reported.

Remington J. Nystrom, 33, pleaded no contest to a charge of second-degree sexual assault of a child on April 12, which was was reduced from a charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.

From the Tribune:

Nystrom agreed to the facts in the criminal complaint, which stated he inappropriately touched a 10-year-old victim while Nystrom was a camp counselor at a Mount Morris camp in Waushara County in 2009, according to the release. Mount Morris is affiliated with the Moravian Church of America.

 

The victim in the case did not report the assault to the church or legal authorities before reporting it to the attorney general’s website for clergy and faith leader abuse.

Nystrom must also serve 10 years on extended supervision after he’s released and pay $1,525 in jury fees.
