MILWAUKEE, WI - A former St. Matthias school teacher accused of sexually assaulting a student and inappropriately touching others is now not allowed to be alone with his son. 

“[Kevin Buelow's] not going anywhere. He bailed out, he came here, he’s met with me, he’s taking this extremely seriously," Jaszon Luczak, Buelow's attorney, said. 

45-year-old Buelow is charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13. If convicted, he could spend 60 years behind bars.

On Friday, the court commissioner ordered no unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 18 —including Buelow's 5-year-old son—per the state’s request.

“Obviously he’s innocent until proven guilty, but when looking at the allegations in this complaint, I can’t say that what the state is requesting is unreasonable," the court commissioner said. 

According to the criminal complaint, Buelow allegedly molested a 4th grader six years ago in the church basement at St. Matthias multiple times during private tutoring sessions and other children say they were touched inappropriately too.

But when leaving the court and asked for a response Buelow only shook his head and mouthed the word "no". 

Buelow is scheduled to return to court Aug. 31st.
