SAWYER COUNTY -- The Court has ordered a cash bond of $250,000 for a Hayward, WI man on charges of repeated sexual assault of a child.

A criminal complaint has been filed charging Roy W. Quagon, of Hayward, WI, with repeated sexual assault of a child over a period of time from April 2000 through April 2010.

On November 2, 2021, law enforcement conducted an interview at the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office with the alleged victim. During the interview law enforcement was advised that Quagon had sexually assaulted a child victim starting when the child was approximately age 4.

The criminal complaint filed against Quagon states that for a period of approximately 10 years, Quagon sexually assaulted the alleged child victim vaginally and anally on numerous occasions at multiple locations. Investigating Officers were told that Quagon also provided marijuana to the alleged victim when the victim was less than 10 years old, in what was described as an effort to calm the child down. They were also told that Quagon would put his hand over the mouth of the victim to calm the victim down.

Editor's note: The criminal complaint includes graphic details of the alleged assaults which has chosen to not include in this post.

Officers were told that Quagon was often under the influence of alcohol and that when confronted about the alleged assaults he stated that the child "wanted it" and that it wasn’t his fault.

Quagon is charged with Class B Felony Repeated Sexual Assault of Child. Online circuit court records show that Quagon appeared for a bail bond hearing in Sawyer County Circuit Court on October 14, 2021, where the Hon. John Yackel ordered a $250,000 cash bond.

Quagon made an initial appearance regarding his charges on November 9, 2021, and is scheduled to appear again in December 2021 for a preliminary examination hearing.

In a separate Sawyer County Court Case, Quagon is charged with Misdemeanor Domestic Disorderly Conduct from an incident that allegedly occurred in July 2021. Online records indicate that as of November 15, 2021, Quagon remains in the custody of the Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office.


Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
