Police Investigate Reports Of High School Sex Club
Mar. 24, 1986
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) _ Several high school students described as ''very nice kids'' have been accused of involvement in a ''juvenile sex club'' that met during school hours in an apartment rented for a 16-year-old boy, officials say.
Waukesha County Assistant District Attorney Penelope Coblentz said she will review police records this week to determine if delinquency petitions will be issued against any of the youths.
''I think part of the problem is that some of the students had few friends,'' Waukesha South High School Vice Principal Thomas Witasek said Sunday.
The apartment of a 16-year-old boy was raided Friday in a search for evidence concerning the alleged club involving three 16-year-old boys, two 15- year-old boys, one 14-year-old boy, one 16-year-old girl and two 15-year- old girls.
Police Detective Steven Werner said the teens had met at the apartment during school hours and engaged in sex acts.
Court records say the apartment was rented for the 16-year-old by his father, who did not want the boy living at home.
The search warrant was used to gather evidence on allegations that a second-degree sexual assault had been committed in the apartment, according to the court records, which alleged that girls were often stripped and tied to bedposts prior to having sex.
Police Lt. Robert Horstmeier said most of the youths allegedly involved in the club attended Waukesha South.
Witasek said police questioned several students at the school Friday.
He said the youths were not known as troublemakers at the school, and ''weren't suspected of anything'' other than truancy.
''The kids I know that were involved were very nice kids,'' Witasek said.
