Judge hears mix of cases, several for drug possession|
A two-year term of probation was ordered in Langlade County Circuit Court Thursday for a Weston man who was among the four individuals arrested during a May 9 traffic stop in which evidence of drug use was found.
It was one of several cases heard by Judge Fred Kawalski this week which involved the use of drugs, including a substance known as bath salts.
Max R. Brummer, 24, has already served 60 days in jail since the arrest. A drug paraphernalia charge was dismissed but he pleaded no contest to misdemeanor counts of obstructing an officer for giving a false name and possession of a hazardous substance.
Among the items seized was a case containing several small bags of suspected bath salts, pipes and assorted paraphernalia. A backpack contained more pipes, a torch and pieces of glass with a razor blade. Another backpack held pipes and a tin holding several empty bags consistent with packaging used for bath salts. A bottle of prescription pills was also found in the car.
The suspected drugs were tested and were positive for both A-PVP, a bath salt, and marijuana.
A co-defendant, Rachel F. Gerber of Rothschild was placed on probation in June for similar offenses. Charges remain pending against two other co-defendants.
In an unrelated case, Bruce D. Spencer, 52, of 235 Seventh Ave. was fined $200 plus costs after pleading guilty to possessing drug paraphernalia. A “pot” pipe was found in his car during a May 10 traffic stop.
Ryan Juech, 21, of 1000 1/2 Fifth Ave. was ordered to serve 30 days in jail after pleading no contest to a misdemeanor count of theft. A bail jumping count along with an additional, yet unrelated, count of theft was dismissed.
Authorities said Juech stole items from the Antigo Block Co. last fall and sold the materials for cash.
Alisha L. Davis, 24, of 218 Virginia St. was placed on probation for one year after pleading no contest to absconding without paying rent. She will be held responsible for the $2,158 still owed.
Katherine Fittante, 61, of 9769 Highway D was fined $817.50 after pleading guilty to a first offense of operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Her driver’s license was revoked for six months and she was ordered to undergo an alcohol assessment as a condition of having it returned.
Steven Roehrig, 44, of 1120 Clermont St. was fined $100 plus court costs on an ordinance violation of disorderly conduct.
Bryan L. Koch, 36, of Milwaukee, formerly Antigo, pleaded no contest to disorderly conduct and was fined $50 plus court costs for an offense dating to January.
A case dating to a small fire at the Antigo Hotel in July of 2012 was dismissed with prejudice.
Deputy D.J. Eldridge testified during a preliminary hearing which ultimately resulted in Aaron C. Miller, 25, of Bowler being bound over for trial on felony counts of bail jumping and stalking.
He pleaded not guilty to the charges in addition to counts of disorderly conduct and violating a domestic abuse restraining order. A status conference is set for Aug. 5.
Tara M. Bailey, 39, of W10666 Fifth Ave. entered pleas of not guilty to multiple offenses and is scheduled to return to court on Aug. 5.
Those charges include criminal trespassing dating to April 29, theft dating to May 1, and possession of narcotic drugs, two for possessing drug paraphernalia and bail jumping for an incident on May 23.
She also pleaded not guilty to two felony counts of bail jumping along with charges of possession with intent to abuse a hazardous substance (bath salts), possession of drug paraphernalia and failure to obey a traffic officer for an incident on June 18.
Christy Hicks, 25, of N2644 Orchard Road was released from custody on a $500 signature bond following her July 10 arrest on a misdemeanor count of possessing drug paraphernalia.
According to court documents, a pipe with burned residue was found in the car and another pipe was concealed in Hicks’ sock. She allegedly claimed ownership and said they were used to smoke bath salts.
Raymond Ullman, 31, of W10076 Highway I was a passenger in the vehicle. He was arrested on a count of bail jumping for violating a no-alcohol condition of bond set in a pending matter. A $100 cash bail was set in the matter.
Both individuals will return to court next week.
