A Racine man is accused of sexually assaulting a 15 year-old boy in a Mount Pleasant motel room for over two days and making him wear a dog collar.

David Lang, 37, was charged by the Racine County District Attorney’s Office on Friday with two counts of second degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 16, and child enticement. If convicted of all charges, Lang faces up to 105 years in prison and/or fined up to $300,000.

According to the criminal complaint, Lang met the 15-year-old Milwaukee boy through a dating app and arranged to meet him at the Super 8 Motel, 1150 Oakes Rd. The boy, who had runaway from home, was missing for three days before police found him at the hotel on August 10. Initially the boy told officers with the Mount Pleasant Police that nothing physical or sexual had happened.

But the next day, the boy told police that he and Lang had sex twice in the room. Lang told the boy to put a dog collar around his neck with a dog tag that said “pup.”

Lang was interviewed later by the Mount Pleasant Police and admitted to having sex with the boy.

Racine County Court Commissioner John Bjelajac set a cash bond for Lang at $100,000.

A preliminary hearing was set for 9 a.m. Aug. 17.
