LAKE GENEVA - New details surrounding a Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteer arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a child.
The Walworth County sheriff's office is now "conducting an investigation in regards to (Rodney) Meiller based on another complaint."
An 11-year-old boy recently told Lake Geneva police that Meiller sexually assaulted him multiple times.
Meiller was supposed to be in court on Monday, but that appearance has been postponed. The Walworth County sheriff's office told TODAY'S TMJ4 that Meiller is at Froedtert Hospital in stable condition.
That 11-year-old boy and his mother told investigators the abuse happened at Meiller's home in the Town of Lafayette and at the Lake Geneva YMCA.
A YMCA board member told TODAY'S TMJ4 that Meiller was not a member, Meiller brought the child to the club on day passes and the YMCA has no official partnership with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
"Upon learning of the allegation we terminated the volunteer's association with us," Richard Lowe, Executive Director of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Rock, Walworth and Jefferson Counties wrote in an email. "Our volunteers and staff undergo thorough screening and background checks."
No one from the Lake Geneva Police Department or district attorney's office would comment because charges are still pending.
