Former UW-Madison student Alec Cook to face trial in Jefferson County

Former UW-Madison student, Alec Cook will face the first of seven trials this month in Jefferson County Court.

Cook, who was expelled from UW-Madison last year is accused of 21 counts, including stalking strangulation, second-degree sexual assault and false imprisonment.

Originally, Cook was set to face trial in Dane County, but after extensive media coverage of the accusations his attorney’s argued Cook would not face a fair trial in the Madison area.

The first of Cook’s seven trials will take place on Feb. 26 and will include the first accusations brought against Cook that then prompted 11 more women to come forward to police. Cook will be charged this month on counts of second degree sexual assault, false imprisonment, strangulation and suffocation.
