Woman with foul mouth sentenced in neglect case

Compared to many dockets in recent weeks, it was relatively light lifting for Judge John Rhode in Langlade County Circuit Court on Tuesday, as he pronounced sentence in only two criminal matters and did not need to establish bond terms in any new cases.

April A. Jones, 43, Madison, reached a plea agreement with the district attorney's office to resolve four misdemeanor cases from 2017.

Jones entered no contest pleas to two counts of disorderly conduct as a repeat offender and one count each of bailjumping and neglecting a child. Two separate charges of resisting or obstructing an officer and a single charge of theft of moveable property valued below $2,500 were dismissed but read into the record.

Judge Rhode sentenced Jones to a pair of consecutive six month jail terms, and withheld sentence on the bailjumping/disorderly conduct plea. The jail time can be avoided if she completes two years of probation.

Jones must also reimburse court costs, obtain a psychiatric evaluation, maintain full time employment, and have no contact with either of the victims or their residences named in the criminal complaints.

Jones' charges resulted from f

Four defendants saw their criminal cases come to a conclusion on Tuesday afternoon in Langlade County Circuit court.

Theologian Jenkins, 24, 1230 First Ave., agreed to a plea deal with the district attorney's office to resolve three open cases. Jenkins pleaded no contest to a felony charge of methamphetamine possession as a party to a crime. In return, five misdemeanor charges were dismissed but read into the record: criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct in a domestic abuse setting, and three counts of bail jumping.

Judge John Rhode delivered a withheld prison sentence on the felony plea, contingent on Jenkins completing three years of probation. As conditions of the sentence, he must reimburse court costs, complete an alcohol and drug assessment, maintain absolute sobriety and full time employment, and make restituion of $1,081.25.

Jenkins' original case was the 2013 criminal damage charge, when he allegedly “destroyed” the living room of his mother's home on Seventh Avenue. The police report describes a scene with holes in the drywall, furniture overturned, food from the refridgerator strewn about, and a broken cell phone in a dog
