space
A number of bonds were set by Judge John Rhode in initial appearances in Langlade County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Nearly all defendants appeared via video from the Langlade County Jail, including;

—Timothy M. Butts, 32, Milwaukee, who was ordered held on a $1,000 cash bond in a case dating all the way back to 2013. Butts, was brought to Langlade County after authorities investigating an altercation Sunday in Marathon County discovered he was wanted on an outstanding warrant.

Butts had argued for a signature bond, but Rhode said he could not due to the length of time in the case, he had agreed to a lower cash bond of $250 in the matter, but quickly changed his mind after an expletive-laden outburst by Butts.

He is charged with disorderly conduct, resisting/obstructing an officer, and two counts of bail jumping. Online court records indicate authorities were called to a Fifth Avenue residence in July of 2013 in which Butts had left the scene after allegedly grabbing his ex-girlfriend and throwing her to the ground.

He was pulled over minutes later and gave officers a false name.

—Michael J. Turcotte, 26, N4510 County Rd. H, was ordered to a $5,000 signature bond on a felony matter, as he is charged with delivery of methamphetamine as a repeater. Turcotte is currently jailed on a probation hold and is facing revocation in the matter. Turcotte allegedly sold one gram of meth to a confidential police informant on June 20. The charge carries a maximum penalty of up to 22 1/2 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

—Joellen A. Wissbroecker, 22, W8844 Hwy. 47, was ordered to a $3,000 signature bond on multiple drug charges. Wissbroecker will remained jailed while the case is pending as she is currently on a probation hold.

She is charged with possession of meth as a repeater, as well as possession of THC and drug paraphernalia, also with repeat enhancers. Police records indicate Wissbroecker was the subject of a medical emergency call Monday night that indicated she was freaking out on meth.

Upon arrival by deputies, she denied needing an ambulance but admitted to drug use and turned over a needle containing meth to authorities, and a search of her sleeping area turned up a marijuana pipe with THC residue. The maximum penalty on the three charges combined is a $10,000 fine and 12 1/2 years in prison.

—Ronald J. Leist, 43, Appleton, is charged with an eighth offense of operating while intoxicated. Leist is also currently on a probation hold and facing revocation. A signature bond of $5,000 was established.

According to police reports, Leist was stopped by Antigo police on Aug. 28 after being clocked traveling 40 miles-per-hour in a 25-mile-per-hour zone. Leist allegedly smelled of intoxicants and failed field sobriety tests before registering a .19 on a breathalyzer exam at the scene. The maximum penalty for an eighth offense OWI is 12 1/2 years in prison and a $25,000 fine.

—Shane C. Gibbs, 44, Deerbrook, was ordered to an $850 cash bond on a charge of operating while intoxicated, third offense. Should Gibbs post bond, he must maintain absolute sobriety and not drive without a valid license.

According to court records, a patrolling deputy was following Gibbs’ swerving vehicle in late June, when Gibbs pulled over to inquire who was behind him. The deputy stopped to see if something was wrong and noticed the smell of intoxicants. Gibbs failed field sobriety tests and a preliminary breath test turned up a blood alcohol level of .248, over three times the legal limit for driving.

—Nicole A. Quimby, 34, Coloma, was held on a $500 cash bond. Quimby faces a third offense OWI, as well as misdemeanor counts of resisting/obstructing an officer and operating after revocation.

Police reports show Quimby was arrested after an officer investigated a suspicious vehicle at the Langlade County Fairgrounds on Saturday. She initially gave a false name to officers before failing sobriety tests.

—Nathan L. Wittchow, 39, Coloma, will remain jailed on a probation hold, but was ordered to a $1,000 signature bond. Wittchow was a passenger in Quimby’s vehicle and is charged with resisting/obstructing an officer in relation to the incident in which she gave authorities a false name.

—Kevin L. Schmidt, 54, 226 Weed St., was ordered to a $500 cash bond, on another third offense operating while intoxicated charge. Schmidt must maintain absolute sobriety as a condition of bond and cannot operate a motor vehicle without a valid license.

Reports indicate Schmidt was stopped by Antigo police near Clermont Street and Graham Avenue Saturday night, and showed signs of intoxication. A preliminary breath test measured his blood alcohol level at .208, well over twice the legal limit.

One sentence was also handed down Tuesday.

—Dawn A. Dailey, 74, Elcho, was fined $812 plus court costs for a first offense operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated. Dailey’s license was revoked for six months and she must undergo an alcohol and drug assessment as well as develop a driver’s safety plan.

The charge relates to a traffic stop on July 25 in Antigo.
