Milwaukee Man Not Guilty Of Mauston Crimes

A jury trial has ended in Mauston for a Milwaukee man accused of abusing a 5 year old boy near Necedah almost two years ago. After 6 hours of deliberation, the verdicts Wednesday night all came back not guilty. 30 year old Eric Roider was accused of causing head and genital injuries to a child while he was filling in for his girlfriend, who was the regular babysitter.

Witnesses included the girlfriend and the victim’s mother. The girlfriend testified that she found the boy unresponsive on the floor a short time after he had breathing problems and called 911.

The mother told the court the boy is doing well now, but has needed physical therapy and counseling since the incident.
