WAUKESHA COUNTY -- A Waukesha man accused of felony intimidation of a witness and sexual assault of a child has been sentenced to prison.
19-year-old London Neal in March pleaded no contest to one count of felony intimidation of a witness/threatening force, etc.
In court on Monday, April 11th, Neal was sentenced to serve five years in prison, and five years extended supervision on that charge.
Neal has been ordered to have no contact with the victim, the victim's family, the victim's home, or anyone under the age of 18. He must register as a sex offender and go through sex offender treatment.
In a separate case, Neal in March pleaded guilty to a charge of second degree sexual assault of a child.
For that charge, Neal was sentenced to serve 12 years in prison and eight years extended supervision with credit for 380 days served.
These sentences are to be served consecutively -- so Neal will spend a total of 17 years in prison, and 13 years extended supervision.
Prosecutors say Neal sent several letters to a 15-year-old girl he is accused of sexually assaulting. The letters were sent from the Waukesha County Jail in an effort to prevent the girl from testifying in the sexual assault case, prosecutors allege.
According to the criminal complaint, in August 2015 Neal wrote: "I just want my boss out of jail okay -- only way that happens is if you don't come to court or drop the charges so think about it's your life. He get 5 years, he out. You come to court, you die. We from Shy-rack. We shoot cops -- so don't think they can help you. This is a letter for you to know not to come to court. "
The complaint says in November 2015 Neal wrote: "Listen, I don't want to hurt you or your mom's but please don't force me to use these gun's against you. I don't like how your people's mom's was in court. Don't let it happen again. Allah is my witness, you will die. P.S. Tell your boyfriend to watch his back. "
According to the complaint, Neal's fingerprints were found on the note received by the victim in this case in November.
