The Milwaukee County District Attorney has pended making a charging decision for the Friday, Sept. 22 alleged sexual assault of a Marquette University student at a crowded house party.

The male suspect, who was taken into custody the night of the alleged assault, made bail and remains a student for the time being, pending the outcome of the university investigation. Even if found not guilty in a criminal court, the student may still face disciplinary actions, if found separately guilty by the university.

MUPD Detectives Billy Ball and Luke Wagner presented evidence to the Milwaukee District Attorney Wednesday, Sept. 27 from an alleged sexual assaultMUPD Captain Jeff Kranz confirmed the detectives recommended that the DA press charges, based on evidence they accumulated.

Following the meeting, the DA decided to pend the case until November. According to Kranz, this means the parties involved (police, suspect, victim) will return to the DA’s office so the case can be reviewed further and it can be determined if charges will be issued.

“With a case like this that has so many aspects, it wouldn’t be surprising if the DA doesn’t make an immediate decision,” Kranz said.
