A Superior man was sentenced May 29 in Douglas County Circuit Court to 14 years behind bars for child sex assaults involving three separate victims.
Yuval Isadorous Bixler, 19, pleaded no contest on Feb. 28 to two felony charges of repeated sexual assault of the same child and one count of second-degree sexual assult of a child, according to online records. One charge of first-degree sexual assault of a child under age 16 by use of threat or violence was dismissed but read-in for sentencing.
Judge Kelly Thimm sentenced Bixler to four years in state prison and three years of extended supervision for each count, to run consecutively.
At the May 29 hearing, Bixler also pleaded no contest to exposing intimate parts to a child and exposing a child to harmful descriptions, both as a repeater. He was sentenced to two years initial confinement and one year of extended supervision to run concurrent with each other but consecutive to the sex assault charges.
Bixler was ordered to have no contact with the victims or their families and no contact with minors except his younger brothers without the approval of his probation agent. He is required to register as a sex offender and was ordered not to use the internet without agent approval. District Attorney Mark Fruehauf told the court Bixler had 305 days of sentence credit for time already spent in jail.
According to the criminal complaints, Bixler sexually assaulted three females under the age of 16 between 2017 and 2019, all in the city of Superior. After pleading to the assaults and while in custody at the Douglas County Jail in April, Bixler exchanged sexually explicit text messages and participated in sexually explicit video chats with another girl under the age of 16.
