Ex-state tropper sentenced for molesting foster child

GREEN COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A former state trooper will spend 20 years in prison for molesting a teenage foster child.

49-year-old James Norquay of Juda must also spend 15 years under extended supervision when he’s no longer behind bars.

A Green County jury convicted Norquay last November on 3 felony counts of child sexual assault by a foster parent, two counts of incest, and a charge of second-degree child sex assault.

State investigators said the incidents occurred at Norquay’s former home in the town of Clarno, where the girl was placed for foster care in late 2008 when she was 15.

The man adopted the girl a year later.

Officials said the molestation continued until January of last year, when the child was removed from the home following a state investigation.
