2 Middleton High students arrested; allegedly sexually assaulted 14-year-old girl student

November 30, 2018

Two Middleton High School students have been arrested for the alleged sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl who is a freshman at the school.

The two arrested are Mohammed Aldachach, 18, and a 16-year-old male teen, the Dane County Sheriff’s Office said.

Lt. Kerry Porter said Aldachach, a member of the high school football team, will be in court Monday facing a tentative charge of second-degree sexual assault of a child.

Aldachach was in court Wednesday and was released on a $500 signature bond. He also was ordered not to have any contact with the victim and cannot be in school when the victim is in school.

Porter told the State Journal the alleged assault happened at a residence in the town of Middleton, following a boys basketball game at the high school Nov. 21.

“She knew the suspects from school,” Porter said. “She reported the assault two days later.”

It wasn’t disclosed if the assault happened at either one of the suspects’ homes.

Porter said the two suspects are the only two involved in the case.

Middleton-Cross Plains School District Superintendent George Mavroulis wouldn’t comment on the criminal investigation.

“Our focus is on caring for the victim and her family,” Mavroulis said. “As a district, we strongly encourage our students to come forward anytime they see, hear about, or are a victim of an assault.”

The alleged assault came two days after a rally at the high school, where about 200 students demonstrated to highlight sexual misconduct on campus.

Porter said the two suspects in the sexual assault case do not appear to be connected to the sexual misconduct allegations on campus.
