Sexual offender granted bail

Posted on December 17, 2016 4:18 pm under Sexual Assault

University of Wisconsin-Madison student Alec Cook has made bail after the Dane County Circuit Court cut it in half from $200,000 to $100,000 Friday morning.

Cook is accused of 21 criminal charges involving 10 women. According to the court documents, he sexually assaulted female students he met at parties, campus recreation centers, and his classes.

Following his arrests, several more women have come forward with additional allegations. One female student says that Cook groped her in front of a crowd and stalked her over several months. The allegations were reinforced after police discovered a leather notebook with details of his methods.

Cook has been placed under emergency suspension and banned from the campus. His release is under certain conditions which include no alcohol, drugs, or weapons. Cook is also not allowed to make contact with any of the complainant witnesses and is banned from accessing social media and dating sites.
