A six month jail sentence is handed down for the former Menominee County Sheriff’s Deputy convicted of sexual misconduct involving a teenage boy. The sentence ordered by Judge Christopher Ninomiya Friday is in line with the joint recommendation by the prosecution and defense in the case against 57-year-old Brian Helfert. Helfert pleaded guilty in October to attempted accosting for immoral purposes and claims he made inappropriate statements to a 15-year-old boy in 2019 which were intended to be attempted solicitation on how the victim could repay him for money Helfert had loaned the boy. Helfert’s plea agreement stated he could serve no more than six months in jail or would retain the right to withdraw his guilty plea and proceed with a jury trial. Helfert must also register as a sex offender and will serve five years’ probation. Judge Ninomiya also imposed the maximum-allowable fine of $2,000.
