Chase D.L. Johnson

MENOMONIE — A Menomonie man appeared Wednesday in Dunn County Court on accusations of incest and sexual assault involving a child who stayed with him.

Chase D.L. Johnson, 26, E5622 690th Ave., is charged with incest and first-degree sexual assault with a child younger than 13.

According to the criminal complaint:

On Feb. 17 the 4-year-old victim’s mother dropped the child off at Johnson’s residence. On Feb. 21, the child was picked up and complained of pain in private areas.

On Feb. 22 the victim underwent a sexual assault examination. An investigator met with Johnson, who admitted he was addicted to pornography, sex and masturbation but denied having contact with the victim. He did say the victim stayed with him from Feb. 17 to Feb. 21.

Charges were filed with Dunn County Court on April 6. Johnson is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Monday.
