Wheeler police chief pleads insanity to 14 sex related felony charges


WHEELER, WI (WTAQ) - The police chief of Wheeler in far western Wisconsin has pleaded insanity to 14 sex-related felony charges.

55-year-old Gary Wayerski of Menomonie is due back in Dunn County Circuit Court September ninth, when further proceedings will be scheduled.

Authorities said Wayerski fondled two teenage boys, ages 16-and-17, after he arrested them in March for breaking into a church in Wheeler.

Officials said he was mentoring the boys when he touched them, and showed them pornographic movies and computer images.

Wayerski reportedly told investigators that a UW Stout student entered his computer and viewed pornography – and he claimed the teenagers drank alcohol without his permission.

He remained in custody at last word on a $35,000 bond.

His charges include child enticement, exposure, and sexual assault by a person who works with children, and letting minors view sexual activity.
