A BRITISH performer in a Disney on Ice show was tonight facing 60 years in prison after being charged with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl.
Matthew Fisher, 31, of Moncrieffe Road, Sheffield, was accused of entering the girl's room at the Radisson Hotel in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and fondling her while her parents were asleep in the room next door.
Fisher was being held at La Crosse County Jail on £7,000 bail and was due to appear at a preliminary court hearing on February 14.
Captain Doug Groth, of La Crosse Police, said that Fisher was charged yesterday with sexual assault of a child under the age of 13, child enticement and criminal trespass. The offence of sexual assault on a child under the age of 13 carries a maximum punishment of 60 years in jail.
Fisher had been staying at the hotel in La Crosse while on tour with Disney on Ice when the incident was alleged to have taken place on December 9 last year. The group left La Crosse the next day but Fisher was arrested in the town of Ashwaubenon, north-east Wisconsin, on January 31.
Capt Groth said that Fisher admitted going into the girl's room when he was drunk and lying on the floor but denied that he had indecently assaulted her.
