Waupaca County criminal sentencing
??Judge John Hoffmann placed Jacob D. Neuy, 18, Appleton, on three years of probation and ordered him to pay $268 in court costs.
Neuy pleaded no contest to a felony charge of burglary as party to a crime. A misdemeanor theft charge was dismissed but read into the record.
He had been accused of participating in a break-in at the Country Inn on State Highway 49 in the town of Waupaca.
??Assistant District Attorney Vicki Clussman moved to dismiss charges of second-degree reckless endangerment, battery, disorderly conduct and theft against Richard S, Tousey, 45, Waupaca.
Hoffmann dismissed the charges without prejudice, which means they can be filed again.
Tousey first appeared in court on May 9 after his ex-girlfriend accused him of running her over with his vehicle.
??Todd M. Thorson, 43, Neenah, will serve one year in county jail with work release privileges, pay $3,731 in fines and court costs, and his license will be revoked for 36 months after pleading no contest to a seventh drunken driving offense.
Judge Raymond Huber imposed and stayed a three-year prison sentence, then placed Thorson on three years of probation. As a condition of his probation, Thorson is prohibited from consuming alcohol.
??Payton B. Meloy, 20, and Joseph L. Scott, 21, both of Clintonville, were convicted of misdemeanor theft.
Originally charged with burglary, they were accused of making forced entry into an apartment and stealing a safe.
Hoffmann placed both of them on one year of probation and assessed them $1,747 jointly in fines and restitution.
??Huber placed Dominick J. Bessette, 18, Clintonville, on one year of probation and assessed him $496 in court costs.
Bessette was convicted of theft and criminal damage to property. A burglary charge was dismissed but read into the record.
Bessette and a 16-year-old boy were accused of stealing a blue and white glass pot pipe.
??Hoffmann placed Bryan K. Bartelt, 38, Bear Creek, on one year of probation after convicting him of a fifth drunken driving offense.
As a condition of his probation, Bartelt will serve one year in jail with work release privileges, pay $3,477 in fines and court costs, and his license was revoked for 36 months.
