The famous 'Miranda warning' given during an arrest requires police to tell suspects that they have the right to get an attorney before questioning.
That right to a lawyer could have an effect on the reckless homicide case of Cain Moss in La Crosse County. Moss is one of two people accused of giving a fatal dose of drugs to a local man last summer. The other suspect, Christina Lorenz, has pled guilty and will be sentenced in July. Moss's attorney wants some of her client's statements to police to be suppressed during trial, because there wasn't a lawyer present. And those statements could include information on where police could find the hidden body of victim Anthony DuCharme. No trial date has been set for Moss. A judge could rule on the admission of those statements within a few weeks.
As expected, La Crosse mayor Matt Harter's latest veto didn't last. The city council has voted to override a veto from the mayor that he made last month to withhold allocated funding for Downtown Mainstreet Incorporated. Harter said he vetoed the six thousand dollars in funding from the downtown business development organization out of the conviction that private entities should not receive public dollars in order to operate.
The La Crosse Loggers and the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse have announced an agreement in principle to provide for the long term financial stability of the UW-La Crosse baseball program and to raise funds needed for enhancement to the baseball facilities at city owned Copeland Park.
The La Crosse Police are asking the public for assistance in locating Fredrick Lomprey IV.
Tom Barrett's people call it a 'political stunt'...
They're responding to a letter from Republican leaders, calling on Barrett to reveal his own economic plan for Wisconsin before the recall election against Governor Walker in June. Assemblyman Robin Vos claims he's only heard one specific idea so far from Barrett, to increase wind energy. Vos says the media should demand answers from Barrett, so the Milwaukee mayor doesn't campaign on 'lies' and accusations against Walker.
