Milwaukee Journal Sentinel - - Milwaukee Wisconsin -

An adult staff mem­ber at Nor­ris Ado­les­cent Cen­ter in Ver­non has been ac­cused of sex­ual as­sault of a child at the fa­cil­ity, the Waukesha County Sher­iff ’s Depart­ment con­firmed Fri­day.

A depart­ment spokes­woman did not pro­vide any de­tails of the ac­cu­sa­tion be­cause it is an ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion, but said the in­ci­dent was re­ported to po­lice ear­lier this month.

Nor­ris, W247-S10395 Cen­ter Drive, is a youth res­i­den­tial treat­ment cen­ter that also of­fers a foster-care pro­gram and an ed­u­ca­tional academy.

Jen­nifer Wallschlaeger, pub­lic in­for­ma­tion of­fi­cer for the Sher­iff’s Depart­ment, said the staff mem­ber has been placed on un­paid leave pend­ing the out­come of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion. The staff mem­ber’s name was not re­leased.
