Wales man gets probation for head-on collision
Waukesha - A Wales man was sentenced Feb. 17 to one year probation for causing a head-on collision in the Town of Summit March 17, 2009.
Thomas M. Massey Jr., 62, of 611 Criglas Road, was initially charged in Waukesha County Circuit Court with two felony counts of first-degree reckless injury, and two felony counts of intoxicated use of a vehicle causing great bodily harm. In a plea agreement with prosecutors, Massey entered no contest pleas to reduced misdemeanor charges of endangering safety/use of a dangerous weapon. The two felony counts of intoxicated use of a vehicle causing great bodily harm were dismissed.
According to the criminal complaint, Massey was driving east on Highway 18 at about 4:25 p.m. when his 2006 Chrysler entered the eastbound lane and struck a 2004 Audi head-on.
Julie P. Hoffman told police her 16-year-old daughter was driving the car and attempted to swerve to avoid the oncoming car but was unable to do so, the complaint said. Hoffmann suffered a broken ankle and was taken to Waukesha Memorial Hospital. Her daughter, who was not identified in the complaint, was taken to Children's Hospital with severe head injuries, the complaint said.
Man referred on charge for apartment fire
City of Oconomowoc - Police are seeking charges against a 56-year-old man in connection with a fire that caused $75,000 in damage to a downtown apartment building earlier this month.
The fire broke out in a small studio apartment located on the first floor of the vintage building at 204 W. Wisconsin Ave.
According to the police report, authorities determined that the blaze started in an upholstered couch or chair, due to careless use of smoking materials.
The man appeared to be highly intoxicated at the time of the incident and a preliminary breath test recorded a result of 0.399.
Two of the building's residents had to be rescued by ladder and one occupant was treated on the scene for minor smoke inhalation; no other injuries were reported.
The case will be forwarded to the Waukesha County District Attorney's office for review.
Man gets jail for assaulting girl, 16
Waukesha - A 20-year-old City of Oconomowoc man was sentenced Feb. 19 in Waukesha County Circuit Court to one month in jail for having sexual contact with a girl at a party in the Town of Oconomowoc in 2008.
Casey I. Baillargeon of 434 E. Greenland Ave. was charged with a misdemeanor count of sexual intercourse with a child 16 years or older and in January entered a no contest plea to the charge. Judge Linda Van de Water ordered Baillargeon to 60 days in the work-release jail but stayed the last 30 days. She also ordered Baillargeon to 18 months on probation.
According to the criminal complaint, a then 16-year-old girl told police she had been drinking heavily outside a Town of Oconomowoc residence at a party when she started to vomit. The girl was taken into the residence and placed in a bed in the basement.
The girl said she woke up at one point and found she was naked and Baillargeon was on top of her, the complaint said. The girl said she got out of the bed, dressed and went outside and told a friend she thought she had been sexually assaulted. The friend then told other people at the party about what had occurred, the complaint said.
