OAK CREEK- A man from Oak Creek accused of abusing two young children will spend 10 years in prison with six years of extended supervision, according to online court records.

According to the criminal complaint, 26-year-old Nicholas Fuchs -- also known to the children an "mean Nick" -- put a three-year-old girl in a clothes dryer and turned it on, along with pinching a four-year-old boy's private part and choking him back in 2011.

Police said that the abuse included breaking the girl's arm.  The girl told investigators "It happened a lot" because "I used to pee my pants."

The girl is the daughter of Fuchs' former girlfriend.  The child was not seriously injured.
