A Marion man was in Waupaca County Court yesterday on sexual assault charges. 44 year old LeRoy R. Whittenberger faces four counts of 2nd degree sexual assault, for allegedly forcing a teenager to engage in sexual acts with him 6 years ago in New London. The criminal complaint says the sexual assault kit from 2012 was tested by the State Crime Lab in June of 2017, and an alleged DNA match was made to Whittenberger. He also has a criminal traffic case in Lincoln County for operating under the influence third offense and an unemployment fraud case in Waupaca County. If convicted, he could face up to 160 years in prison on sexual assault charges only.
