Ex-Mount Horeb cop gets plea deal for having sex with underage runaway

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - A former police lieutenant in southern Wisconsin faces 15 years in prison, after he admitted having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old runaway.

45-year-old Dennis Jenks of Madison has pleaded guilty in Dane County to one felony charge of repeated child sexual assault. 32 other felony counts of child sexploitation and possessing child pornography were dropped in a plea deal.

Jenks resigned from the Mount Horeb police force after he was first arrested early last year. The runaway was from Beloit, and authorities said he lived with Jenks in Madison from October of 2012 until the following February.

The defendant said he tried confirming the youngster's age but could not do so. He also faces a federal charge for allegedly taking explicit photos and a video of himself and the youngster -- but his attorney said the federal charge would be dropped if he gets at least 15 years behind bars for his state conviction.
