MILWAUKEE, WI — When a father picked up his 10-year-old son from the residence of a family friend who had been watching him, the boy uttered he never wanted to go back there again.
He told his dad she put pills in his slushie.
The boy further described what he experienced at that house. 35-year-old Tara Gotovnik allegedly forced the victim to perform sexual acts on her while she was naked and used sex toys, according to Greendale police after the father tipped them off on August 7.
In an interview with a Greendale police detective, the boy said the woman suggested they video record their sexual acts to "go online and make money for it." The victim also described how the pills she made him take made him puke, urinate on himself and become lightheaded.
Gotovnik was confronted by officers and denied sexually assaulting the boy but did admit to drugging him with Ambien, which is a sedative. In Gotovnik's home, police found sex toys that matched the description of the victim's words and empty pill bottles so probable cause was well-established for her arrest.
She was charged with first degree sexual assault of a child under 12 years of age and delivery of a controlled substance, charges that could render at least 25 years in prison.
