MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A 26 year old Milwaukee man is sentenced to a decade behind bars for beating his girlfriend’s children and putting one of them in a clothes dryer.
Nicholas James Fuchs was sentenced Friday. He has admitted abusing the children who were then 4 and 5 years old. He says it happened when he was living at her apartment in Oak Creek last year.
The children’s mother says she overheard her daughter threatening to put her brother in the dryer. When the mother asked them about the threat, the children said it was something “mean Nick” had done to the girl in the past.
Fuchs apparently broke the girl’s arm last August and attacked the boy as well.
