Sheriff: Human services intern had sexual relationship with client

JUNEAU, Wis. - An intern working for the Dodge County Human Services and Health Department had an inappropriate sexual relationship with a client, the sheriff's office said.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office said it opened the investigation on April 5 into an incident involving an intern who was working for the human services and health department.

According to a news release Tuesday, Kyle Reilly, 37, of Columbus, had a personal relationship with a client. 

Due to a conflict of interest, the Dodge County District Attorney's Office requested a special prosecutor and the case was forwarded to the Waukesha County District Attorney's Office for review and prosecution.

Reilly was an unpaid intern with Dodge County Human Services and Health Department through the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater. The internship started in September 2015 and Dodge County ended the internship on March 1, 2016, after officials learned about the relationship.

The sheriff's office said that in late March, the DCHSH received a police report from Horicon Police Department related to an incident in late February. Details related to that investigation led DCHSH to notify the Dodge County Sheriff's Office to report possible criminal activity.

Online court records show two counts of fourth-degree sexual assault charges were filed Tuesday in Dodge County Court. His initial appearance in court is scheduled Nov. 7 at 9 a.m.
