Bivens sentenced to 7 years prison, 3 years at HOC

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee County judge sentenced 19-year-old Kendel Bivens to seven years in prison, three years in the House of Correction and another six years of extended supervision.

Bivens pleaded guilty in December 2013 to being one of five people charged in connection with the sexual assault of a cognitively delayed teenage girl.

The criminal complaint in this case was filed in June 2012. It states Bivens picked up the girl from her home, and drove her to his house near N. 7th St. and Walnut St. Once at his home, he took her in the basement where a few of his friends were waiting.

Bivens allegedly told her to perform sexual acts on the men waiting for them in the basement. The criminal complaint says Bivens told the then-17-year-old girl he was her “pimp”. The complaint also says the girl went through with the acts out of fear, and did not want to perform them.

As part of his sentence, Bivens must also register as a sex offender with the State of Wisconsin.
