Wisconsin sheriff's deputy charged with child sexual assault

He works for the Pierce County Sheriff's Office.

A sheriff's deputy in Pierce County, Wisconsin, is on administrative leave after being charged with molesting a girl under the age of 16. 

Allen Wojcik, 31, was booked into the county jail on Wednesday and released shortly thereafter, jail records show. 

Wojcik was charged Friday with multiple felonies and is facing "decades in prison" if convicted, KARE 11 reports

The station says he's been with the Pierce County Sheriff's Department for five years.

According to the Hudson Star-Observer, the criminal complaint says the victim knows Wojcik, and that the deputy, while off duty, "tried apologizing" to the girl and told her not to tell anyone about the sexual assault.  

The paper says Wojcik is quoted in the complaint as "adamantly" denying the allegations; he apparently also requested a lawyer when "an investigator asked him about a letter related to the allegations."

Wojcik was a DARE officer for a time, and left the program in May 2017, the Pierce County Herald reports

He's a resident of Spring Valley, Wisconsin.
