ROCK COUNTY, Wis. — A former Wisconsin sheriff’s deputy from Fort Wayne was arrested in the Hoosier state for sex crimes involving children.

Gary Huber, 34, was arrested in Indiana on Dec. 13, according to the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation. He is a former deputy with the Rock County (Wis.) Sheriff’s Office.

Huber is accused of sexually assaulting four boys between 2010 and 2016, reports WKOW-TV in Madison. He faces the following charges:

  • First-degree child sexual assault – sexual contact with a child under the age of 13
  • Repeated sexual assault of a child
  • Three counts of child enticement
  • Two counts of causing a child under age of 13 to view/listen to sexual activity
  • Three counts of exposing genitals, pubic area or intimate part.

Huber worked for the Rock County Sheriff’s Office from 2016 through July 2021.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office said Wednesday that they learned of the allegations against Huber on July 1, 2021, reports WISC-TV in Madison. Members of the sheriff’s office tried to meet with Huber about the allegations, but he refused to return to the office and resigned the same day.

Officials with the Wisconsin Department of Justice said Huber resigned to avoid an internal investigation.

“These are serious allegations and our office is involved with investigating some of those serious crimes in Wisconsin,” Wisconsin Attorney General Josh Kaul said Wednesday. “Child sexual assault is horrific, and making sure someone is held accountable is vital.”

Huber is due to be extradited to Rock County next week.
