There was a jam-packed gallery in Langlade County Circuit Court Monday afternoon, with dozens of defendants making adjourned initial appearances, two warrant return matters, and new charges filed in a handful of criminal cases.

Jennifer L. Lemerande, 46, Laona, entered a not guilty plea to a misdemeanor count of obstructing an officer. She was allowed to remain free on an already posted $300 bond.

Lemerande is accused of making a false report to police when she came to the Safety Building on Feb. 11, claiming she had been assaulted by two unknown men on the road near Menards. She further said that she had lost her phone in the snow during the attack, then returned and found it, took it to the Verizon store, and received advice on how to fix the device.

Lemerande later admitted she had in
