Two Convicted In Child Sex Case Sentenced To Prison Friday

Douglas Fiscus 2Wendy Brown

Both individuals who entered pleas for child sex crimes were sentenced Friday and both are off to prison.

Douglas Fiscus was sentenced to a total of 91-months in prison by Judge Tim Chambers who went against the plea agreement in the case somewhat. Both the defense and the state had agreed on 86-months in prison which is the mitigated number in the sentencing grid box, but Judge Chambers stated in court he couldn’t find anything mitigating in this case. He gave Fiscus the standard mid-range sentence of 91-months.

Fiscus had entered pleas to one count of electronic solicitation and one count of sexual exploitation of a child. The state dropped all the rest of the counts. He had been charged with sexual exploitation of a child, two counts of electronic solicitation of a child, one count of solicitation of a child and aggravated indecent liberties.

The charges against him involves two victims, a 13-year-old and a 15-year old. The aggravated indecent liberties count is for the 15-year-old, however the sexual exploitation counts could have seen him get life sentences.

Co-defendant Wendy Brown was sentenced to 91-months in prison which was the plea agreement in her case. She had entered a plea to count 1, aggravated indecent liberties with a child, but the state amended that count to a lower level felony meaning she was sentenced through the sentencing grid instead of under Jessica’s Law. She also entered a plea to another count of indecent liberties of a child. The other two charges which were “sexual exploitation of a child” counts were dismissed.

The charges against her are in relation with a 13-year-old child. She was also charged with indecent liberties with a child, and a less severe charge of sexual exploitation of a child. Those charges involved a 15-year-old.

The crimes occurring between March 1, and April 30, of last year in Haven, but also had a connection with Hutchinson. The arrest coming after a joint investigation by both Haven and Hutchinson Police.

There were many statements made by victims either stated to the judge or in written form read to the judge by Senior Assistant District Attorney Steve Maxwell.

Those statements given by family members could only be described as very emotional.

We have chosen not give any information on the relationships between the victims and the defendants to protect the victims privacy and to protect them from any more trauma.


  • Confused

    How the case ended with 91 months, less than 8 years when both had charges that would have gotten them life in prison is beyond me. Just don’t understand.

  • WOW

    I don’t understand either. Only 8 years for taking these children’s childhood from them. I am glad they are both off the streets and hope karma gets them in prison. I hope and pray for the victims that they do not allow what these two sickos did to define them. I am glad these children did not have to testify on the stand but 8 years is NOT enough,our justice system sucks!

  • ridiculous

    Meanwhile, theyre sending people with drug offenses to prison for 15 to 20 years. It makes me sick.

    They should have received the maximum.

  • Law?

    I read about a case where the parents got 18 years for chaining their daughter to a dresser during the night. These people should get double that!! How horrible. Too many cruel people in this world. My heart breaks for these kids!

  • No fan of Doug and Wendy

    Wow is right , only 8 yrs for two childrens lives you have totally destroyed . I think the public should be able to decide the fate of pervs like these two . I know drug dealers getting 12 yrs to life and murderers getting 7-10 yrs— I don’t understand the reasoning of our so called “justice system” — something needs to be done and fast !

    • WOW

      I agree with you 100 %
      Something has to be done…
      I hope and pray that the actions of these two sickos do not destroy nor define these children’s life.
      I hope they get all the help they need to overcome this and realize not all people are bad.
      I went through something similar in my life and still suffer from it, so I hope these 2 girls can excel in life and not give up or give in :)
