MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A former Mount Horeb police lieutenant is due in federal court Wednesday, after being indicted for child exploitation.
44-year-old Dennis Jenks of Madison is also facing state charges connected with an alleged sexual relationship with a 14-year-old runaway.
The federal indictment accuses him of taking explicit photos and a video of himself and the boy between last November and January. He was arrested Tuesday in that indictment.
Jenks resigned from the Mount Horeb police force after his original arrest. He's awaiting trial in Dane County on more than 30 charges of possessing child pornography, child sexual exploitation, and repeated child sexual assault.
Authorities said the runaway from Beloit lived with Jenks in Madison from last October until February.
Officials said the case came to light when police were investigating another man's alleged sexual contact with the same youngster.
