RHINELANDER - In a turn of events, Minocqua's Jonathan Thormann reached a plea agreement today in Oneida County Court.
He is accused of hurting a woman, smashing cars with a hammer, and setting a house on fire in Minocqua. You may remember him from his outbursts several months ago.
"Would you mind sharing your address?"(Judge Bloom) "Nope."(Thormann) "If you don't mind, would you tell us your address?"(Judge Bloom) "Figure it out. You're the judge and you're the cops. I-r-o-n-w-o-o-d, M-I" (Thormann)
Thormann was scheduled for a motion hearing to change venue after a request last month was denied.
But instead a plea agreement was reached dismissing three of the five felonies. Most noticeably the charge of substantial battery. He still had four more charges which he respectfully answered to.
"Ms. Hogan, at this time, how does your client plead to counts three and six as alledged in the information and then counts four and five as ammended?" (Judge Bloom) "No contest your honor."(Hogan) "Is that correct Mr. Thormann?"(Judge Bloom) "Yes sir."(Thormann)
He pleads no contest to two felonies, "strangulation and suffocation", as well as, "unsafe burning of own building". Judge Michael Bloom found him guilty.
His sentencing is scheduled for August 28th. He could do six years in jail along with five more years of extended supervision.
MILWAUKEE - A Milwaukee mother whose car was stolen with her infant strapped in the back seat says she held onto the vehicle for as long as she could as the carjackers drove away.
The woman was dragged down the street in Milwaukee Monday and eventually lost her grip. But what happened next was unexpected. The car stopped about a block away. And, one of the two carjackers got out, removed the 1-month-old baby, still in his car seat, and left him at the curb.
Surveillance video from a nearby house shows the mother running to retrieve her baby, who wasn't hurt.
Police are looking for the carjackers and the vehicle.
