DA: Sheboygan alderman sexually assaults boy

SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- A Sheboygan alderman is charged with repeatedly sexually assaulting a teenage boy last year.

Thirty-three-year-old Kevin MatiChek made his initial court appearance on the single felony count Monday by closed-circuit TV from jail.

According to the complaint, MatiChek met the now-15-year-old boy last summer and treated the teen to gifts, movies and a cellphone that the boy's mother took away.

The complaint alleges the two began having sexual contact in MatiChek's car and then several times at MatiChek's home.

Sheboygan Press Media reports District Attorney Joe DeCecco said MatiChek groomed the boy to get him to agree to sexual activity.

In a statement, defense attorney Casey Hoff said MatiChek is presumed innocent.

Bond for MatiChek was set at $75,000 cash. He's due back in court Feb. 18.
