The activity in Langlade County Court on Tuesday afternoon included bond terms set in one new criminal case and sentence pronounced in another.
Travis J. Fleischman, 50, 1102 Clermont St., faces a single felony charge of second and subsequent offense delivery of methamphetamine. He was ordered to a $3,000 cash bond with conditions that he not use or possess controlled substances illegally and not drive without a valid license.
Fleischman had been sought on a warrant since he failed to appear for a scheduled court date in August. He was previously convicted of felony sixth offense operating while intoxicated in 2017 and has multiple convictions for battery and disorderly conduct.
According to the criminal complaint, officers conducted visual surveillance as Fleischman sold 1.24 grams of meth for $80 to another individual in a parking lot in the city of Antigo on the morning of June 15, 2020.
In the sentencing hearing, Nancee R. Sterenberg, 22, Wisconsin Rapids, pled guilty to second offense operating while intoxicated. A count of operating while revoked was dismissed but read into the record, and a corollary charge of operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration was dismissed on a prosecutor’s motion.
Sterenberg was sentenced to 25 days in jail, but that term was stayed pending two years of probation. She will serve six days in jail as a condition of the plea, which the court granted may be served in another Wisconsin county, to commence by May 1.
Sterenberg is also ordered to pay a total fine of $1,555, will have her license revoked for 14 months, and must install an ignition interlock device for 14 months. Conditions of her probation include completing an alcohol assessment and driver safety plan, maintaining absolute sobriety and full time employment, and not being present in any establishment with a class B liquor license.
Court documents state that Sterenberg was the subject of a traffic stop at 4 a.m. on Oct. 17 near Highway T and the Jack Lake Fire Lane after a patrolling deputy observed her vehicle touch the center line then drift to the right, with tires going off the roadway. Sterenberg stated she was coming from Antigo and heading to Wisconsin Rapids, then that her friend lived “around Antigo” when the deputy pointed out that she was north of the city.
Field sobriety tests revealed clues of impairment and a preliminary breath test returned a result of .171. She was taken into custody and a search of the vehicle located an open bottle of Mike’s Hard Lemonade.
