Jeremy J. Pomerenke, 37, Ogdensburg, is charged with felony stalking, disorderly conduct and telephone harassment.
On Dec. 11, 2013, Waupaca Police Officer Paul Benzschawel met with a couple who said they had received a threatening call.
According to the criminal complaint, the caller had threatened to kill them if they did not pay him the $400,000 in legal fees that he believed they owed him for accusing him of a crime.
Prior to meeting with the couple, Benzschawel discussed the complaint with Detective Sgt. John Mocadlo, with the Waupaca County Sheriff’s Office.
Mocadlo said Pomerenke visited him earlier that day and was upset because law enforcement did nothing after the couple accused him of committing a crime for which he was never charged. Pomerenke told Mocadlo he wanted the couple to pay his attorney’s fees and left the office saying, “I’ll just have to take it into my own hands then,” according to the complaint.
Since 2007, Pomerenke and this family have repeatedly appeared in court seeking restraining orders against each other.
In the summer of 2008, Pomerenke was charged with violating the restraining order four times. From these charges, he was convicted of one count of disorderly conduct, while three charges of violating a restraining order were dismissed but read into the court record.
In September 2010, Pomerenke was convicted in Outagamie County of violating the restraining order.
