Man Accused of Arson, Abuse Gets Fresh With Judge Submitted: 01/25/2013
Rhinelander - Judges usually command respect, but Oneida County Judge Michael Bloom got just the opposite from a man accused of serious crimes today in court. Jonathan Thorman, 29, is in the Oneida County Jail. Minocqua Police arrested him early yesterday morning. They say he severely hurt a woman, smashed cars with a hammer, and set a house on fire in Minocqua early Wednesday morning. Appearing via video in court today, Thorman was less than respectful. The prosecuting attorney asked for a $10,000 cash bond, but Judge Bloom set it at $25,000. Click "Play Video" to see why.
