Staff member accused of sexually assaulting child at youth facility
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.
