Cook’s plea deal would dismiss the remaining 16 charges.

Plea deal reached ahead of Cook’s first trial

Alec Cook will plead guilty to five criminal charges at a plea hearing Wednesday in Dane County according to the Wisconsin State Journal.

The agreement would dismiss the other 16 charges against Cook as the former UW-Madison student was set for his first of seven trials next Monday in Jefferson County.

Cook’s sentencing hearing will take place about three months from now.

Although the remaining charges are dismissed, a judge can take them into account in the sentencing of Cook.

Of the original 21 charges Cook faced, 12 were for sexual assault, six of which included use of force.
