A Racine man who was taken into custody in August of 2020 after sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl known to him several times over a three-day period has been sentenced to jail time, supervised probation, plus fines and fees in Mower County District Court.
38-year old Kyle Ralph Murphy was sentenced Monday to a year in jail, 25 years of supervised probation and $1,160 in fines and fees for a felony charge of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct, significant relationship, victim under 16.

Murphy first pleaded guilty to the charge on October 6th, and he was convicted the same day. A felony charge for 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct, significant relationship, victim under 16 years of age, multiple acts and two felony counts of 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct, victim 13-15 years of age, position of authority in the case were all dismissed with Murphy’s guilty plea.
