A Middleton man who is a former church music director was placed on 15 years of probation and a one year conditional jail sentence after pleading no contest to two counts of sexual assault of a child.
James A. "Alex" Gillespie, 48, of Middleton, appeared in Dane County Circuit Court Friday for sentencing.
Middleton police said the victim, a 14-year-old boy, was the victim in another local sexual assault case involving a Mount Horeb police lieutenant living in Madison.
The boy's late nights at Gillespie's condo in the 5500 block of Century Avenue prompted neighbors to grow suspicious, according to police.
The criminal complaint said the victim told police, "Yeah, we did something." He went on to tell detectives that Gillespie performed oral sex on him on several occasions, according to the complaint.
Initially, the victim told investigators he was 18 years old.
