MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -
UPDATE - A status conference has been scheduled for the Marathon County man charged with sexually assaulting three boys.
Brandon McCloy pleaded not guilty during his arraignment in September. Everest Metro Police tell Newsline 9 McCloy is still being held in Marathon County jail.
A pretrial conference was held October 5th. The status conference is scheduled for October 18th.
6-28-2012 - A Marathon County man has been charged with sexually assaulting three young boys under the age of ten. Authorities said there may be even more victims.
18-year-old Brandon McCloy has been charged with sexually assaulting three children. Everest Metro Police Chief Wally Sparks said there is still more work to be done.
"Our investigation right now indicates there may be some other victims, both in the city of Wausau and around Marathon County," said Sparks.
McCloy is being held at the Marathon County jail. His attorney declined to comment about this case. According to the criminal complaint, McCloy admitted to the crime. In it, it also said he told investigators he wasn't trying to hurt the children and he wants to get help for his issues.
"When we have cases of child sex assault, oftentimes children who are being abused do not report it right away," said prosecuting attorney Theresa Wetzsteon.
Wetzsteon said this case is still in its beginning stages and prosecutors want to collect as much information as they can.
"It is always a concern when there are repeated acts of child sexual assault alleged and there are multiple victims alleged over a period of time that we don't know everything about what happened," said Wetzsteon.
Authorities said cases like these highlight the importance of talking with your children and making them aware of possible dangers.
McCloy will return to Marathon County court for his next appearance on Wednesday.
