Former Mt Horeb cop pleads guilty in assault case

Former Mt Horeb cop pleads guilty in assault case

 

Sentencing will be held next month for a former Mt Horeb police officer, who carried on a months long relationship with a 14 year old boy. For a time, the youth lived with 45 year old Dennis Jenks. Jenks was in Dane County Court Monday, and pleaded guilty in a deal with prosecutors. The relationship was uncovered in February of 2013 as authorities investigated another man, James Gillespie of Middleton, about his relationship with the teen. Gillespie is a former church music director and was sentenced last October to a year in jail and 15 years probation.
