Greenwood man faces charges

A 45-year-old Greenwood man was charged Monday in Eau Claire County Circuit Court with three felony charges related to the alleged attempted sexual assault of a child.

Ricky A. Doede was named in the criminal complaint filed by Eau Claire County prosecutors. He is charged with using a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, child enticement, and attempted sexual assault of a child under age 16.

According to court records, Doede made contact with an undercover law enforcement officer who was posing online as a 14-year-old girl. When questioned by authorities, Doede allegedly told officers he knew he was attempting to make contact with someone under age 18.

Doede was freed on Monday after signing a $10,000 signature bond. He is to be in court again for a Jan. 26 hearing in the case.
