A Middleton man who is a former church music director has pleaded 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 to enter the plea. A pre-sentencing investigation was ordered.
Middleton police said the victim, a 14-year-old boy, is 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.
"They're concerned about young men, boys, in his apartment late at night, coming and going, and they expressed those concerns to us," said Capt. Charles Foulke, of the Middleton Police Department.
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.
