Jan. 20, 2014

A 25-year-old Brookfield man was charged Jan. 13 with having sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl.

Roger Cypher was charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court with second-degree child sexual assault, a felony that carries a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, Cypher said he had met the girl through a dating website, though she had used a fake name, and they agreed to meet on Jan. 9. He said they had sex at his house, and he left the next morning for work.

The girl apparently contacted her mother after he left, using a neighbor's telephone, the complaint states. The neighbor told police the girl looked scared.

Cypher told police, according to the complaint, that he used "extremely poor judgment."

He is expected to be in court Jan. 30 for a preliminary hearing.
