Otsego County Man Charged with Sexual Assault
A Town of New Lisbon man will be back in court next Wednesday after being arrested yesterday for first degree criminal sexual act, 1st degree sexual abuse, and 4th degree criminal possession of marijuana.
If convicted, 75-year old Richard Allen Schaffer of Garrattsville faces up to 25 years in prison on the sexual assault charges and up to an additional year on the drug charge.
The Otsego County Sheriff’s Office says these charges are the result of an investigation in which a 42-year-old woman claims Schaffer had inappropriate sexual contact with her against her will. 103 grams of marijuana was seized from Shaffer’s residence by law enforcement personnel.
