Oak Creek man accused of putting girl in dryer pleads not guilty
MILWAUKEE - A man from Oak Creek, accused of disturbing crimes involving child abuse, pleaded not guilty to all six charges in a Milwaukee courtroom on Wednesday.
Nicholas Fuchs, 26, faces charges of putting a three-year-old girl in a clothes dryer and turning it on, along with pinching a four-year-old boy's private part and choking him.
The criminal complaint says the girl referred to him as "mean Nick," and said the abuse happened in 2011.
Police said that the abuse included breaking the girl's arm, putting her in a clothes dryer and turning it on.
The girl told investigators "It happened a lot" because "I used to pee my pants."
The girl is the daughter of Fuchs' former girlfriend. The child was not seriously injured.
Fuchs was to return to court in May.
