Judge Rules Against Motion To Seal Court Records From A Prostitution Citation Against A Mayville Attorney

(Mayville) A Dodge County Judge has denied a motion to seal court records from a prostitution citation against a Mayville attorney. Steven Bauer ruled this week that the documents were public record and falls under open record laws in Wisconsin. Legal counsel for Jeremy Vanderloop, who was cited for prostitution on April 22, filed the motion to seal the records. The citation came after two Milwaukee women suspected of being prostitutes were pulled over in a car rented by Vanderloop. When he was questioned, Vanderloop allegedly conceded that he was with a female he believed to be 22-years-old at a Mequon hotel. The girl was reportedly 16-year-old. No criminal charges have been filed against Vanderloop; the prostitution citation is a municipal violation. The Dodge County Sheriff’s Office and the Mequon Police Department have not commented on the incident but say it’s an ongoing investigation. Vanderloop has entered a not guilty plea in the case. The citation does not require him to appear in court but an intake date is set for May 30.
