Retired Kenosha County captain charged with sex assault

Posted on November 1, 2016 8:34 am under Nursing Home Abuse

A former Kenosha county captain was charged with sexual assault of a mentally ill woman at a residential care facility.

Clarence Mielke, 73, had been in the service for 29 years before retirement. The assisted living facility, Carey Manor, has been operated by his wife, Brenda, since 1994 and is run out of Mielke’s Pleasant Prairie home. It has eight beds with the aim of providing a holistic, family-oriented living environment.

Neighbor Lawrence Zettler was shocked to hear the disturbing news about Mielke. A complaint was filed against Carey Manor two weeks ago, based on Wisconsin DHS records. Mielke has been charged with two counts each for sex assault of a mentally ill victim and sex assault by an employee of a care residential facility.

Mielke is scheduled for court hearing Thursday, November 3. No booking has been made yet at Kenosha County Jail.
