Man charged in sexual assault of child

Multiple felony charges have been filed against a town of Kinnickinnic man in connection with the sexual assault of a young girl.

Craig F. Ahlman, 41, was charged with two counts of sexual assault of a child under 16, and three counts of possession of child pornography were filed in St. Croix County Circuit Court April 20.

The criminal complaint alleged Ahlman inappropriately touched an 11-year-old girl on two occasions in 2008 around Thanksgiving and before Christmas when she was staying at his residence.

A search warrant was issued, and a forensic examination of Ahlman's computer in a basement office revealed files containing child pornography, the complaint said.

Ahlman and his wife, Christine, operate a wedding photography business out of their residence. Christine told investigators she and her husband have separate offices in their home at 525 90th St.

Ahlman was scheduled to make an initial appearance in St. Croix County Circuit Court Tuesday (April 28).
