A 38-year-old Butler man was charged Thursday, July 8, with first-degree sexual assault of a child, allegedly groping his 11-year-old daughter.

According to the criminal complaint, the girl's mother contacted Village of Pewaukee Police on July 26 to report the father's behavior. The mother, a Pewaukee resident, told police that she had seen the girl's father inappropriately touch her daughter's breast on at least one occasion.

The girl told investigators that she did not have a good relationship with her father, but recently he had begun treating her like her mother. He requested that she take meals to him in his room and had laid his head down on her chest.

She said that her father had grabbed her breasts on several occasions, beginning in 2012 when she was in fifth grade. He had also grabbed her buttocks on one occasion and would walk in on her when she was in the shower or changing in her room, the complaint said.

The man, who will not be named to protect the victim, could face 60 years in prison if convicted. He posted a $2,500 cash bail at an initial appearance Aug. 1. He is next expected to appear in court on Aug. 14.
