A 34-year-old Caledonia man was charged with having sex with a 16-year-old child, according to a criminal complaint by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Matthew Fuchs plead not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of sexual intercourse with a child. If convicted of the charge, Fuchs faces up to nine months in jail and/or fined up to $10,000.

The girls’ parents called the police when they discovered that their daughter was staying at a neighbor’s house without their permission.

An officer with the Caledonia Police Department cited the girl for violating the village’s curfew law. While the girls’ parents told police that they believed Fuchs knew how hold their daughter is, she does try to appear older, has had sex with older men and has been arrested for claiming to be older than she really is.

The girl told police she has known Fuchs since she was little, but she never told him how old she was and he never asked.

Fuchs’ bail was set at $1,000. A pre-trial conference was set for 3:15 p.m. Jan. 22 in front of Racine County Circuit Court Judge Wayne Marik.
