FDL Man Suspected Of Sexually Assaulting Babysitter Bound Over For Trial

The 41-year-old Fond du Lac man suspected of sexually assaulting a babysitter has been bound over for trial. Jose Veliz waived his right to a preliminary hearing in Fond du Lac County court.  The victim is a 14-year-old girl, but was 11 years old when the assaults allegedly began. She told investigators he threatened to hurt her, her mother, or the child she was babysitting if she told anyone about the assaults. Veliz denied having any sexual contact with the girl. He is also facing substantial battery charges for a domestic incident. He’s being held in the County Jail on a $50,000 cash bond.
