Armour man gets three years for sexual contact with teenager
ARMOUR — An Armour man was sentenced last week to three years in prison for having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl last July.
Tyler Shulaw, 20, pleaded guilty on Feb. 25 to the Class 3 felony sexual contact offense and was sentenced April 16 to 12 years in prison with nine years suspended and credit for 80 days served.
On July 9, law enforcement was alerted to a report of a runaway juvenile who was believed to have cut off her ankle monitor in Armour. One of the 14-year-old girl's relatives indicated, according to court documents, that the girl might be with Shulaw.
Douglas County authorities found Shulaw and the girl in the basement of Shulaw's home. Evidence of a sexual offense was gathered during an investigation, and Shulaw was charged with fourth-degree rape and sexual contact with a child between the ages of 13 and 16, both of which are Class 3 felonies.
Nine years of Shulaw's sentence are suspended on the condition that he complies with recommendations in the psychosexual evaluation completed prior to his sentencing. He was ordered to pay $106.50 in court costs.
