Former Mount Horeb cop pleads not guilty to sexually assaulting runaway boy

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Not guilty pleas have been entered for a former Mount Horeb police lieutenant charged with sexually assaulting a 14-year-old runaway boy who moved into his apartment.

Dane County Circuit Judge Ellen Berz entered the pleas Thursday to an amended complaint against 44-year-old Dennis Jenks of Madison.

Online court records show that Jenks is charged with 34 felonies for the molesting of a child originally from Beloit. The charges include repeated child sexual assault, eight counts of child sexploitation, and 24 counts of possessing child pornography.

A pre-trial hearing in Jenks’ case is set for September 27th.

48-year-old James Gillespie, now of Mackinac Island Michigan, is scheduled to be sentenced October 4th for sexually assaulting the same youngster. Gillespie pleaded no contest last month.
