MADISON, Wis. -

A Madison man is accused of sexually assaulting a child repeatedly for several years, according to court documents.

Jose Rojas-Laguna, 44, was charged Friday in Dane County with one count of repeated sexual assault involving the same child.

A criminal complaint said police took a report last week from a 16-year-old girl who told police Rojas-Laguna had touched her sexually multiple times beginning in 2008.

The complaint described dozens of assaults in which Rojas-Laguna would take the child, then about 11 years old, into a bedroom and touch her sexually. In 2011, Rojas-Laguna began forcing the child to touch him sexually, according to the complaint. The last assault happened sometime around August 2013.

The suspected assaults took place at two Madison residences; one in south Madison and another on the near west side, the report said.

Rojas-Laguna faces up to 60 years in prison on the charge.

A court date is scheduled April 14, according to online records.
