A disturbing case of incest out of Big Bend involving a Muskego man and his sister will go to trial March 5. However, the defendant, who is charged with one count of incest and one count of attempted incest, has again delayed entering a plea in the case.
Earlier attempts by the defense to reduce his $10,000 cash bond had been denied by the court. A hearing on Tuesday proved fruitless as the defense again requested more time to enter a plea, however Judge William Domina moved the case forward without a plea, giving them until the Feb. 28 jury status hearing to do so.
According to the criminal complaint, the suspect — who isn’t being named by Patch in order to protect the identity of the victim — went drinking with his sister on Aug. 1 at a bar in Big Bend. They left around 10:45 p.m. and went back to his house where she passed out on his bed. Reports state she was woke up later during the sexual assault.
The victim was eventually able to get away to contact someone to pick her up. She has recently filed a temporary restraining order against her brother, who remains in Waukesha County jail pending the trial. He could face up to nearly 19 years in prison and $37,500 in fines if convicted.
