David J. Nickerson, whose admission to molesting a Milwaukee altar boy during the 1980s freed a man wrongfully convicted of the assault, was sentenced Wednesday to five years in prison.

Nickerson, 65, told investigators he had contact with the boy - then a third-grader at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic School on the south side - in Milwaukee and later in Delaware. Nickerson pleaded guilty in September to third-degree sexual assault.

The boy knew Nickerson as "Brother Dave."

In 2006, after deliberating for two hours, a jury convicted a different "Brother Dave" - Dave Sanders - of molesting the boy. Sanders spent eight months in jail and in prison before a letter discovered by the victim's grandmother led investigators to Nickerson. Sanders was then freed.
