Ex-alderman pleads not guilty to child sex assault charge

Posted:
SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (AP) -- A former Sheboygan alderman has pleaded not guilty to a charge that he repeatedly sexually assaulted a teenage boy.

Kevin MatiChek entered his plea at a hearing Wednesday. MatiChek was arrested Feb. 6 after police followed up on an anonymous tip. He allegedly gave gifts to the teen he met last summer.

While the complaint alleges MatiChek engaged in a sexual relationship with the boy from June through September, a detective testified Wednesday that sexual activity continued as recently as the Sunday before the then-alderman's arrest.

Sheboygan Press Media reports MatiChek's defense attorney said he may ask for a change of venue because of media attention on the case.

MatiChek has since resigned as alderman, saying he didn't want the charge against him to detract from city business.
