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.

    No! More like I’ll bet he got a little too close to a teeny bopper, who ALSO got a little too close to him.
    Of course, it was probably all his fault because he should have known better. We have turned dating into a crime for two people: one of them being the age of majority and one not. Unless the ” Not” One is under 13, I don’t think it should be criminal when it’s consensual, even. though one is not of age. MOST teens at 13 a n d older know exactly what they are doing in that department. And a lot of parents let them freely use the internet without checking behind them and becoming parents.
