Isaac R. Yoder, 26, was arrested this week after an investigation into the sexual assault of an Amish juvenile in the town of Union, according to Vernon County Sheriff John Spears.

The investigation was opened when the Wisconsin Department of Corrections notified the Vernon County Sheriff’s Department that Yoder, an Amish community member, had violated the global positioning system bracelet he had been wearing.

Yoder also notified his parole agent that he had committed the crime.

Yoder is being held without bond in the Vernon County Jail and is scheduled to appear in Vernon County Circuit Court for an initial appearance at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Feb. 27.
