A Halloween party with underage drinking in Rock County may have led to a sexual assault and subsequent arrest of a sheriff’s deputy. Milton police officers responded to an early morning report of a sex assault. Police Chief Jerry Schuetz says 38-year-old Steven Stenulson was arrested Monday as a result of the allegation and was jailed in Dane County.
Stenulson is on administrative leave, relieved of all police authority and had his weapon and deputy card revoked, pending the outcome of a criminal and internal investigation. This includes physical evidence that has been sent to the state crime lab.
Milton police are also investigating the home where the incident was reported. Schuetz says further enforcement is expected for the owners who permitted alcohol be served to minors.
