High school employee arrested on accusations of sexually assaulting a child. Fox 25/48’s Zach Prelutsky has the latest on the situation.
Timothy Schilling was an education assistant working with security at Holmen High School. Yesterday, he was arrested and booked after accusations involving sexual assault of a child.
Today, the 47-year-old appeared in court for the first time. The court was given a pre-trial report indicating that there was a potential for a felony sexual assault, physical abuse of a child, and repeated sexual assault of a child.
Schilling has been placed on unpaid leave and a determination of his continued employment with the district is under review. The school district says there is no evidence that any of the charges involve the school district or any of the students.
In a statement, district administrator Kristin Mueller says quote, “We will not let this event interfere with our commitment to our student’s education. We continue to work to provide our staff with timely and factual information so that they may best serve the needs of our students and their parents.”
The district also says they are thankful for the continued support of parents and the work through these challenges.
Schilling was released on a ten-thousand dollar signature bond.
“I’ll have you sign a ten thousand dollar signature bond, you’ll have no contact with any minor, you’ll have no contact with the individuals whose initials were provided, you’ll be on a GPS with an exclusion zone around the area.”
For the people who are actually named, Schilling is scheduled to appear back in court on December sixth.
