Milwaukee personal injury attorney Benjamin Wagner of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® was interviewed by Fox6 News in relation to the recent allegations of sexual abuse filed against a former Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department captain, previously discussed here.
Clarence Mielke, 73, is facing four charges of sexual assault for his conduct while working at the assisted living facility owned by his wife. New information shows that the victim was a 50-year-old resident of Carey Manor who suffers from Huntington’s disease.
