Milwaukee Co. judge sentences Tim Tse to ten years in prison

MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- A Milwaukee County judge sentenced Tim Tse to ten years in prison plus another five years of extended supervision after pleading guilty in October to one count of burglary-commit a battery on person. Tse must also register as a sex offender for the next 15 years.

Tse was a Chinese exchange student at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Back in 2006, he was accused of sexual assault. The criminal complaint against Tse says he broke into the victim’s house and stuffed a chemical-covered rag in her mouth. He’s then accused of sexually assaulting the victim, hitting her, drugging her, and tying her up in the bathroom to take pictures of her naked body.

Tse was arrested for the crime. But after posting $100,000 bail, he fled the country. Then this spring, U.S. Marshals caught up to him in Hong Kong.
