LA CROSSE - A Whitehall man is accused of fondling a terminally ill cancer patient while she was sedated in her hospital bed.
The woman asked him to bring her some clothes and personal items, and he decided to stay the night.
The man was sleeping on a couch, and the woman fell asleep after taking oxycodone and trazodone. She says she awoke to find him touching her inappropriately.
A police report quotes the man as telling investigators the woman was making sounds that made him think she wanted him to touch her. He also said he was changing the woman's' sanitary pad at her request, and he conceded it might have been more appropriate to have a nurse do that.

They started this to raise money to restore the old town hall.
"We wanted to restore it. Not for sure what we were going to use it for at first, but then the community kind of indicated to us that they want to use it," said Willlow Springs Garden Owner Peggy Griffin. "We created it to host family events, wedding, reunions, anniversaries are going on there today."
