Former Deputy's Appeal Being Heard By State Arbitrator
There might not be a ruling for weeks or months after a labor hearing happening today in the Trisha Stratman case...
A state arbitrator is hearing arguments on whether Stratman was fired unjustly from her job as a La Crosse County sheriff's deputy, following a fatal crash. Stratman was dismissed just over a year ago for violating department policies...for driving at high speeds and going through red lights while responding to an emergency call. Stratman's squad car was going over 90 miles an hour when she collided with teenage driver Brandon Jennings at an intersection of Highway 35. Jennings died in the crash. A jury acquitted Stratman on a homicide charge.
