VIROQUA, Wis. -- The Readstown police chief accused of misconduct in office will face new charges that he groped a teenage boy.
Shay Larson was arrested last week on charges he used his position as police chief for sexual favors and lying to investigators.
During his first apperance in Vernon County Court Thursday afternoon, prosecutors said they plan to file additional felony charges against Larson.
A 14-year-old boy told investigators Larson touched him innappropriately and made sexual requests of him. The boy said Larson told him not to tell anyone about the alleged touching.
A judge set a $20,000 signature bond for Larson. He is scheduled to appear in court again next week.
