Charges Dropped in Kenosha Sex Assault Case

Kenosha – Sexual assault charges were dropped against two Kenosha men after DNA evidence proved inconclusive.

The Kenosha District Attorney’s office asked that charges be dropped against Foster Ramos, 24, and Jeremy Tufnell, 28. Each had been charged on April 20, Ramos with five counts of first-degree sexual assault and three counts of false imprisonment, Tufnell with seven counts of first-degree sexual assault, four of false imprisonment.

The men had been accused of sexually assaulting a 20-year-old woman at a hotel in Kenosha.

Ramos’ attorney Terry Rose said his client said there had been some sexual contact between Ramos and the woman, but contended that the contact was consensual and that there was no sexual assault.

Assistant District Attorney Rosa Delgado told Circuit Court Judge Bruce Schroeder that DNA test results came back last week. She said there was no DNA match to Tufnell.

She said there was incidental DNA matched to Ramos, which could be consistent with consensual activity both the alleged victim and Ramos said occurred prior to the alleged assault.

There was DNA evidence that did not match either man, Delgado said.

Schroeder granted the prosecution’s motion to dismiss the case. The case had been scheduled to go to trial in August.
