Former Jeopardy champ from Arlington Heights charged with child sex assault
A former “Jeopardy” champion is charged with child sex assault.
Jerome Slowik is from Arlington Heights, but he was charged in Wisconsin.
He pleaded not guilty and faces trial in October.
Wednesday night, Slowik said the matter would all be cleared up.
In January, Slowik won $121,000 as a five day Jeopardy champion.
The game show did not invite him to an upcoming tournament of champions, but they would not say if it’s because of the child sex assault case.
