Criminal charges have been filed accusing a former minister and truck driver of molesting a boy in 2008.
The boy said he was 13 when 64-year-old Michael Delaney of Tomah assaulted him in his semi-truck, according to the complaint filed in Monroe County Circuit Court. Eventually the assaults escalated to forced oral sex, the teen said.
Delaney threatened to tell people the teen was gay if he spoke out about the abuse. He also forced the teen to watch pornographic movies, according to the complaint.
The victim came forward in November. Police arrested Delaney on Jan. 27.
Delaney has since retired from his position at the Church of God of Prophecy in Necedah, Wis.
Prosecutors charged Delaney with child enticement and sexual assault with a child under 16 years of age as a persistent repeater. He returns to court for a preliminary hearing at a later date.
