Randall Shesto II of Waukesha, described in Internet postings as having performed with a band called Nailwounds, was convicted in June of second-degree sexual assault of a child. He was accused of having a sexual encounter with an underage girl last December whom he met through MySpace.com.
He also was convicted this year of having sex with another 15-year-old girl.
Waukesha County Circuit Judge Ralph Ramirez sentenced Shesto to 2½ years of prison and 2½ years of extended supervision, but stayed the term and placed him on probation for five years. He also was ordered to serve a year in jail — including one month behind bars and 11 months on work release.
Shesto was ordered by Judge Ramirez to register as a sex offender and told that, while he is on probation, he cannot have access to the Internet or a cell phone unless approved by his probation agent.
