Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Two more charges are filed against a La Crosse doctor accused of sexually assaulting multiple children.

40-year-old joseph Poterucha appeared virtually in La Crosse County court today.

He now faces three counts of first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13.

He’s a pediatrician and ICU doctor at Mayo Clinic Health System in La Crosse.

The complaint says the alleged incidents did not happen at the clinic.
