CRANDON - The last of six men involved in a Mole Lake stabbing will go to jail for the crime.

Dakota Tuckwab's case is the last of the six to be wrapped up after a stabbing in Mole Lake in February 2012.

Tuckwab pleaded to a pair of felonies in Forest County Court in September.

One for substantial battery, one for bail jumping.

At sentencing yesterday, Tuckwab was ordered to spend nine months in jail as part of four years probation.

Tuckwab was one of six men to beat and stab a man in and drug and gang-related attack a year and a half ago.

Many of the other gang members went to prison for the attack.

WISCONSIN - Coyotes become more active and territorial this time of year.
