RUSK COUNTY -- New charges of child sexual assault have been filed in Rusk County Circuit Court against 36-year-old Marc J. Gross, a convicted sex offender.

A criminal complaint was filed in March 2022 against Gross, charging him with 3 counts of Class Class B Felony 1st Degree Child Sexual Assault - Sexual Contact With a Child Under Age 13, and Class I Felony Exposing Genitals. The charges filed against Gross have penalty enhancers attached for being a repeat offender.

Gross was convicted of 3 counts of Class D Felony Child Enticement-Recording in 2015 and he is required to register for life as a sex offender. Online records for the Wisconsin Department of Corrections indicate that Gross was released from Wisconsin State Prison in June 2021 on extended supervision.

The criminal complaint filed against Gross states that in July 2021 he had sexual contact multiple times with a child under the age of 13. A forensic interview was conducted with the child victim. Details of the sexual assaults are contained in the criminal complaint, however, DrydenWire has chosen to not include that information in this post.

Law enforcement interviewed Gross who denied having any sexual contact with the child or exposing his genitals to the child, however, he allegedly did acknowledge being alone with the child more than once.

Wisconsin Department of Corrections online records indicate that Gross was revoked from extended supervision and returned to the custody of Wisconsin State Prison in January 2022.

Online circuit court records show that a hearing was held in Rusk County Circuit Court regarding Gross’s new charges and he is scheduled to appear again in May 2022. At the time of this post, no information was listed in online court records as to any bail bond for Gross.
