A cash bond of $10,000 has been set for a 44-year-old man arrested in La Crosse for attempted sexual assault of a child.

Police arrested Midstokke on Tuesday at an arranged meeting place off Rose Street. He’s also charged with possessing drugs, including meth.

Midstokke has a long record of convictions, mostly in La Crosse and Columbia counties.
