Holmen Sex Offender About To Learn Whether He'll Be Committed
The trial ended nine months ago, but the judge's ruling wasn't ready until today.
Chad Schroeder should learn this afternoon whether he'll be released from prison, or committed to a state hospital. Schroeder already has served about 20 years for forcing underage girls to have sex with him, while he was a teenager in Holmen. The state justice department requested a commitment trial, to determine if Schroeder might commit sex crimes again if he's sent out into the community. Judge Dale Pasell has been weighing a decision since the trial last May.
