Theresa Man Facing Trial For Child Assault

(Theresa) A Theresa man charged with assaulting a minor is heading to trial. Adam Saegert waived his right to a preliminary hearing this week on a felony count of Repeated Sexual Assault of the same Child. In May, the victim’s mother filed a complaint after she learned of the alleged assault. According to the criminal complaint, the 15-year-old told investigators that between 2018 and 2020 Saegert had inappropriately touched her at his Theresa residence. When questioned, Saegert reportedly admitted that contact had taken place on multiple occasions. If convicted, the 35-year-old faces no more than 40-years behind bars. An arraignment hearing is scheduled for next month.
