 Group accuses Happ of going easy on child molester

MADISON, Wis. (AP) _ A conservative investigative group is accusing Democratic attorney general hopeful Susan Happ of letting a child molester off easy because he was in a contract to purchase her house.

Media Trackers released a statement on Tuesday saying court and land documents show Happ and her husband entered into a three-year land contract calling for Daniel J. Reynolds to purchase their home in late 2009.

In early 2013 Happ's office charged Reynolds with two felony counts of sexual assault of a child. This past March her office agreed to defer prosecution, an arrangement where an offender avoids a conviction in return for completing certain conditions.

Media Trackers says the case raises questions about Happ's commitment to protecting children. Her campaign says the case was handled appropriately.
