POLK COUNTY -- Multiple charges have been filed against a man who contacted law enforcement in Polk County to report that he had committed a crime.
On January 25, 2020, Polk County Dispatch received a phone call from a man requesting to speak with a St. Croix Falls Officer, according to a probable cause report from the Polk County Sheriff’s Office.
The man, identified as Kaj Juergensen, age 45, allegedly told the Officer that Juergensen had ‘done something bad’; going on to say that he just had sexual intercourse with a victim who is not identified in the probable cause report for confidentiality reasons.
Juergensen provided a statement to Law Enforcement, according to the probable cause report, stating that he had been viewing pornography on his phone, after which he went into the kitchen of the residence and brushed against the victim and then proceeded to have sexual intercourse with the victim.
In his statement to Law Enforcement, Juergensen allegedly stated that the intercourse was consensual and not forced. He met Officers at the residence where the assault allegedly occurred, and was taken into custody and evidence was collected from the residence.
Juergensen is charged with Class C Felony Incest With Child, Class G Felony 3rd Degree Sexual Assault, and Misdemeanor Sexual Intercourse with Child 16 or Older, Actor 19 or Older.
Juergensen was previously convicted of Misdemeanor 4th Degree Sexual Assault in April of 2012 regarding another Polk County Circuit Court case.
Online circuit court records indicate that Juergensen was initially placed on a $5,000 cash bail bond, however, that was later amended to $1,500 cash which was then posted. Juergensen made an initial appearance regarding his charges on January 31, 2020 and is scheduled to appear again in February 2020.
Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
