Milwaukee Police Officer Steven Lelinski, who is charged with sexual assault, was accused of committing similar crimes by at least six other women in the past decade but never charged by the district attorney's office, according to police, court and prosecution records.

Police presented at least five of the cases to prosecutors, who declined to issue charges, saying the accusers were not credible so there wasn't enough evidence to convict Lelinski.
