Sex offender charged with child enticement

Waukesha – A 50-year-old Sussex man, who is a registered sex offender, made his initial appearance in Waukesha County Circuit Court today as he was charged with four felony counts of child enticement after he approached several boys at a Hartland park last month.

Dennis C. Marth of N65 W22201 Park Lawn Drive, appeared in court Monday and Court Commissioner Martin Binn set a bail bond of $25,000 and ordered Marth to appear in court Aug. 17 for a preliminary hearing.

Marrth was convicted in July 1986 for first-degree sexual assault and is listed on the state’s sex offender register website. Marth’s custody and supervision had been terminated, the website said.

According to the criminal complaint, Marth approached several boys at the park July 15 asking the boys were the railroad tracks were located. One boy told police that two days earlier he had shown Marth where the tracks and asked the same question. That boy told police he and his friend did go with the man and walked across a footbridge in the tree line and pointed out the tracks, the complaint said.

The Canadian Pacific tracks run along a tree line on the southern border of the park.

A nanny went to the nearby police station to report the suspicious activity by Marth.
