A Northeast Iowa man has been arrested in connection with a sexual abuse incident in Spillville.


Following an investigation by the Winneshiek County Sheriff, 53 year old Joseph Taylor of Fort Atkinson was taken into custody when he turned himself in, on Saturday (Aug. 11).

As a result of an incident in Spillville on July 25th, authorities issued an arrest warrant for Taylor on Friday, on a charge of Felony Sexual Abuse; he was jailed the next day.

Taylor has since posted $13,500 bond, and was released.

Authorities are not releasing any more details of the incident, which remains under investigation.
