NEW GLARUS — A New Glarus police officer resigned on March 5 after felony sexual assault charges were filed against him. 

According to court records, the same day Alexander A. Brey, 29, resigned, the Iowa County District Attorney’s office filed a third-degree sexual assault charge against him. Green County District Attorney Craig Nolen referred the matter to the Iowa County District Attorney’s Office for charging. Iowa County Assistant District Attorney Curtis Johnson is prosecuting the case because Nolen determined that it would be a conflict of interest to handle the prosecution of this case.

Brey’s first court appearance will be in Green County and is scheduled on April 17 in front of Judge Faun Marie Phillipson.

New Glarus Police Chief Jeff Sturdevant declined to comment, but in a statement said the charge is “not related to his official duties with the New Glarus Police Department, nor are they alleged to have occurred during the course of the execution of his duties as a police officer in the Village of New Glarus.”

The charge, according to the criminal complaint, stemmed from an August 2023 incident at Brey’s home. The victim, who knew Brey, told police the assault happened when the victim had been asleep. 

The charge is a Class G felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison, a $25,000 fine, or both. If convicted, he would be required to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

Unrelated, the New Glarus Police Department swore in its newest full-time officer, Skyler Mullen, on March 20.
