I counted 14 Felonies including multiple sexual assaults, yet Judge Jeffry Wagner of Milwaukee’s 38th district felt it would be appropriate to to release this potentially dangerous criminal without significant restrictions, a GPS braclet, and without posting a dime in bail.

The Milwaukee “Court” minutes include the following note:

Oral No Contact Order with victims. Defendants ordered not to discuss case amongst themselves without the presence of their attorney. Defendant released without bail. msn

If you have concerns about this situation, I’m sure  Judge Jeffry A. Wagner would be happy to hear from you.

Here is his contact information.

    Fine work, team Blue. Only took 2 years to figure out something was amiss…

  • Common Sense

    Judges are typically prohibited from replying to the public’s letters, your mail will wind up in the trash.

    And afte reading the complaint, don’t hide drugs in the your ass in Milwaukee.

    “….screanring worcls to thä effec”t “Yoú in nry assl Get oul of nry pants! Get out of nry ass! You’re not suppoied to be cJoing that!…”

    ha ha ha, wow, talk about dedication.

  • certain

    Only a useless troll would even attempt to justify this kind of action. It was against the law, idiot. That’s why the cop has all the charges against him. So your trollish comment should be – Keep your fingers out of people’s assholes.

  • Ed

    Judges are not prohibited from reading letters. Cite the case law.

  • Tom

    I hope the prosecution asks for jury trial.

    If these cops are convicted on any of the sexual assault counts they’ll have to register as sex offenders. If they do time they’ll be getting lots of extra attention from fellow inmates for being cops/sex offenders.

    The Judge was asking the cop(with a hint of arousal) how did his fingers smell?

    @Ed Common doesn’t know case law. please don’t feeding the trolls

    Once again a cop gets special treatment when he has committed a crime;
    yet still the police contingent wants us to believe that they are treated no differently, and in fact receive as harsh or harsher punishments as the rest of society. What I can’t figure out is this: are they trying to fool the rest of us or do they truly believe, even in light of the evidence to the contrary, that they are receiving equal or greater penalties for their crimes? The first shows an arrogance toward the public, the second a detachment from reality. Neither is a comforting thought coming from the people who are supposed to protect and serve, and who claim to have to make sudden, life-and-death decisions as a matter of course. So which is it: lying to the public or psychotic-like break from reality?

    I still hope that Common has the bad sense to be a Texas cop and pull that crap in my neighborhood.

  • simpleton

    Being a cop is a sh*tty job…ba dah boom! couldn’t resist.

    I wonder, how would this judge react to a non-cop asking that bail be set to $0 under the equal protection clause of the constitution?

  • gene willis

    all are equal in the eyes of justice.some more then othere’s.special favors would never be the norm for protecting people who protect and serve the public intrest,or is it the law enfocement protection?all will face justice for crimes and be penalized for such acts of violance under the law.except if you are in law enfocement and then it dosnt aply.bail will not be set as to encumber release from jail.unless you are in law enfocement,then bail is a free pass.corruption of law enforcement has been in place since 1980.the high and lower courts have turned there backs on the true laws of this nation.there is no such thing as even justice,that people is a fairy tale.

    No cop will ever see the inside of a prison for sexual assault. NEver happen.

    Now if the Fed were to take the case he might get time there because he can be protected in Fed prision. I say let the feds take over this one and file the civil rights violations there (separate counts) I believe it is 15 year minimum per count.

    The victims need to take this to the FBI, probably by way of a senator or congressman first.

    No judge can order victims NOT to talk to the FBI. He does not have power over federal juris.

  • john

    screw letting this dirty badge even get a trial take him out back let each of the victims kick him in the nuts,then cut his nuts off,then stone the motherfucker to death that would be sweet.
