Driver in crash fined over $1,000, he also faces criminal charges
space
A Bryant man facing criminal charges as the result of a single vehicle crash last month was found in default on various traffic citations after he failed to make a scheduled appearance Tuesday in Langlade County Circuit Court.

The citations filed against 24-year-old Andres L. Vasquez were among a collection of tickets which rolled across the bench of Reserve Judge Glenn Hartley.

Six tickets, carrying a price tag of over $1,000, were issued after Vasquez rolled his vehicle along Highway S in the town of Norwood. He suffered a facial injury and after initial transport to Langlade Hospital, he was airlifted to Aspirus Wausau Hospital.

During the ambulance ride, Vasquez allegedly became uncooperative and verbally assaulted medical personnel with profanity, triggering a charge of disorderly conduct.

Officials said he also spit at deputies and EMTs requiring his placement in a “spit mask.” That action sparked a felony charge of throwing or discharging a bodily fluid at a public safety worker.

The tickets, and corresponding fines, included citations for failure to keep a vehicle under control, $213.10; failure to transfer a vehicle title, $175.30;

Sex offender to be released into public
space
The Shawano County Sheriff’s Department is notifying the public about the planned release of a convicted sex offender.

Jackson Carpenter, 41, will be released on Dec. 23 to a residence on Bluebird Road at Birnamwood but will remain under strict supervision by the Department of Corrections.

A former Bonduel area resident, Carpenter was convicted in 1993 of two counts — second degree sexual assault of a child and child enticement for the assault by force of a 13-year-old female acquaintance. The incident occurred in the town of Navarino in 1991.

According to the Shawano Leader newspaper, court records also showed an assault of a 12-year-old girl in July 1989; an allegation of sexual abuse of a 7-year-old girl in the summer of 1990; sexual relations in September 1992 with a 15-year-old girl who became pregnant with his child; and a March 1993 offense against a 13-year-old girl where the charge of second degree sexual assault was later dropped.

“Mr. Carpenter has a history of sexually assaulting minor female acquaintances by using force,” the sheriff’s department said in its notice.

In 1998, a Shawano County court determined that Carpenter could

Alleged sex offender returns to courtroom
space
Following a year’s absence due to medical-based issues which resulted in an extended stay at a Michigan hospital, an Antigo man was returned by law officers to Langlade County Circuit Court Tuesday where he is awaiting prosecution for child sexual assault.

At 60-years-old, Edward “Freddy” Fleming is at risk of spending the remainder of his life in prison on allegations he molested a young girl during the summer of 2012. The details of the case were obtained through statements provided by the girl, first to a family member and then to a social worker at a child advocacy center in Wausau.

The crime, first degree sexual assault of a child under the age of 13, carries a maximum 60-year term of imprisonment upon conviction.

A bail jumping charge was later added after Fleming failed to attend a court hearing set in that matter in February of 2013. He was arrested in California and returned to Antigo five months later.

Fleming entered pleas of not guilty to the counts in September of 2013.

Marathon County Judge Lamont Jacobson was assigned to preside over both cases after Fleming asked for a substitution of judge. During Tuesday’s hearing, Flem
