Milwaukee teacher faces second child sex assault charge


A Catholic school teacher was charged Friday with assaulting a student during tutoring sessions at St. Matthias Parish School on Milwaukee’s southwest side.

Kevin D. Buelow, 45, of West Allis, was charged with first-degree sexual assault for touching a child younger than 13 between September 2010 and 2011, according to a criminal complaint.

He was charged with another count of child sexual assault earlier in August. That incident occurred in 2012, according to a criminal complaint.

He appeared in court Friday on the new count and was being held on $5,000 bail.

The victims recently came forward and investigat­ors found other girls who said Buelow touched them inappropri­ately while they were students at St. Matthias, the criminal complaint said.

Buelow worked at St. Matthias until 2013 and most recently worked at Holy Apostles School in New Berlin. A letter from Holy Apostles administra­tors said Buelow has been placed on administra­tive leave.

The letter said the allegation­s are not believed to involve faculty, staff or students at Holy Apostles.

The latest complaint alleges Buelow inappropri­ately touched a female St. Matthias student, who was 9 or 10 at the time, repeatedly in 2010 and 2011.
