Daniel Koepke pleads no contest to groping Sussex girl
Koepke, 18, could face 40 years in prison
Daniel Koepke pleaded no contest to charges of second-degree sex assault on Aug. 29, having been accused in February of allegedly groping an underage girl in the Village of Sussex sometime between 2010 and 2011.
According to the criminal complaint, a woman reported to the Waukesha County Sheriff's Department that Koepke had inappropriately touched her daughter's friend.
The 14-year-old girl told police the incident occurred in the summer before she entered seventh grade or during seventh grade when she was 12 or 13.
She said that Koepke was one of several friends invited by her older brother to spend the night at their house. She said that she fell asleep with the boys and awoke to Koepke laying next to her. She told police that Koepke had one hand down her shirt and his other hand on her buttocks, outside of her pants, the complaint states.
She thought she was dreaming and rolled over to face him. She began to fall asleep but Koepke became more aggressive in his groping, she told police, and she eventually left the room. She told police Koepke later tried apologizing.
Koepke, 18, was convicted last November in Washington County of exposing himself to his 6-year-old cousin and masturbating on her bed. He was sentenced to 22 months in prison and five years extended supervision.
He is currently being held in the Kettle Moraine Correctional Institution. He is expected to be sentenced on Oct. 31 and could face an additional 40 years in prison.
