Sentence for New Glarus burglary thrown out
Placeholder Image
MADISON - A state appeals court Thursday threw out the five-year prison sentence a former Stoughton man received in 2014 in connection with a New Glarus home burglary that netted $153,000 and several guns. District IV Court of Appeals ordered resentencing for William J. Wilke because his attorney failed to adequately represent him. The appeals court concluded that neither Wilke's attorney nor District Attorney Gary Luhman told Circuit Judge Thomas Vale that the plea agreement recommended Wilke's burglary sentence be imposed concurrent to the revocation sentence he already was serving.
