Willis man sentenced to prison on sexual battery charge

(KNZA)--A Willis man has been sentenced to 10 years in prison on charge of aggravated sexual battery.

Brown County Attorney Kevin Hill said 20-year-old Anthony Lay will also be required to register as a sex offender for a period of 25 years upon his release from prison.

Lay was sentenced Monday in Brown County District Court on charges in three separate cases dating back to 2018.

The sentences in the three cases, which also included charges of felony criminal possession of a firearm and fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer, were ordered to be served at the same time.

Lay was given credit for 335 days served in jail.

He pleaded no contest to the sexual battery charge in January, canceling a jury trial that had been set in the case.

Lay had originally been charged with rape.

He was arrested in January 2019 on the rape charge following an investigation by the Hiawatha Police Department.
