Sexual assault charges brought against Wisconsin teacher

Residents of Stevens Point, Wisconsin may have been surprised to learn that sexual assault allegation have been brought against a local teacher. The 39-year-old Stevens Point teacher was charged in court after authorities said he began sexually assaulting a teenage girl shortly after the death of his wife. The man was a technology education teacher at Stevens Point Area Senior High.

The man was arrested on Sept. 20, 2011. He now faces charges of repeated sexual assault of a child as well as charges of exposing his genitals to a child. He was placed in the Wood County Jail and is on a $250,000 cash bond. Additionally, he must have no contact with any girls.

The identity of the teenage girl is being withheld. According to the criminal complaint, the teacher started having sexual contact with the girl three or four weeks after his wife died in November. During an interview with authorities, he admitted to having sexual intercourse with her as many as 10 times. If he is convicted, he could face up to 83 years and six months in prison.

As is true with any sexual assault allegations, the consequences can be severe and life-changing. When faced with charges of this nature, many defendants may feel better protected if they consider working with an experienced defense lawyer. A qualified Wisconsin defense attorney can explain the charges and may be able to offer legal advice as to what options are available. He or she may also be able to assist in having certain charges dropped or reduced.
