Former police chief sentenced to prison


Dunn County (WQOW) - Wheeler's ex-police chief is going to prison for a long time.

On Wednesday, Gary Wayerski was sentenced to 14 years behind bars.  He was convicted of a range of crimes related to sexual assault.  He had been accused of having dozens of sexual encounters with  two teens he was mentoring.

Wayerski was charged in 2011 when he was still police chief of the Dunn County village.  He was fired a few months later.

Along with prison time, Wayerski was also given 16 years of extended supervision.
