Judge sets bail in array of cases, guns, drugs on the list|
Langlade County Judge Fred Kawalski set bail at $1,000 cash Monday for a Bryant man accused of being in illegal possession of firearms.
William C. Drewek, 32, stands charged with six such counts for the six guns removed from his residence last week. Due to a prior felony conviction for burglary dating to 2004, he is legally not allowed to possess the weaponry.
Each count is a felony carrying a possible prison term of up to 10 years.
According to court documents, the guns were found while law officers were questioning Drewek as to why his wallet, cell phone and other items were lying in the lawn of another residence.
After finding the items, the occupant of that home notified law officers of his discovery, indicating that he did know Drewek and did not know how long the items had been there.
During Monday’s hearing, defense counsel Jessica Schuster provided an explanation for the guns, indicating that they belonged to a family member.
District Attorney Ralph Uttke argued that even if that was the case, Drewek had possession as they were in his house.
The case is scheduled to return to court next week.
A $2,500 signature bond was continued for Matthew Taunton, 18, of 629 Freiburger St. who was arrested on drug charges as the result of a traffic stop last week. A backpack found in the vehicle and allegedly owned by Taunton contained a scale and five bags containing a total of 18.34 grams of marijuana.
He is charged with possession of marijuana with intent to deliver and possession of drug paraphernalia. The matter will return to court on Aug. 25.
A $1,000 signature bond was continued for Jennifer L. Spiegl, 39, of 603 10th Ave. on 18 counts total — nine for uttering a forgery and nine for bail jumping. She is accused of fraudulently cashing over $340 in checks stolen from a family member. A status conference is set for Aug. 25.
Bail was also set in a number of other cases.
Shane R. Schweigel, 17, of 2742 Highway HH was allowed release on a $500 signature bond on a felony charge involving the delivery of marijuana.
The charge dates to May when a small amount of marijuana was found in an Antigo teen’s bedroom. That teen said Schweigel had given him the drug.
A $500 signature bond was set for Vicki L. Dobratz, 59, of W9617 Highway F on a charge of possessing drug paraphernalia. She was cited after a suspected marijuana pipe was found in her pocket.
Joshua D. Micke, 32, of 1011 Second Ave. was released on a $500 cash bond on a charge of domestic disorderly conduct as a repeat offender. The charge stems from a July 4 skirmish in the town of Wolf River.
Entering pleas of not guilty were Craig Walters, 44, of 631 Irving St. to counts of battery and disorderly conduct for a domestic scuffle in May; Sheila A. Davis, 46, 218 Virginia St. to a misdemeanor count of bail jumping; and Paul J. Knitt, 43, Marion, to a third offense of drunken driving and driving with a revoked license.
All of the cases will return to court in coming weeks.
