Two repeat offenders entered pleas and were sentenced on new felony charges in Langlade County Court on Thursday.
Daniel C. Jueck 34, Antigo, appeared via video from Waupun Correctional Institution. He entered no contest pleas to two felony counts of battery or threat to a law enforcement officer, in two separate cases. Four charges were dismissed but read into the record: a third count of threat to an officer, resisting an officer, and two counts of disorderly conduct. All charges featured a repeat offender enhancement.
Jueck received the same sentence for each conviction, five years in prison, divided into three years of initial confinement and two years of extended supervision; however, those terms were stayed pending three years of probation.
The first complaint states that on Aug. 22, 2019, at the jail, Jueck became upset that the lights could not be turned off in his cell, so he placed wet toilet paper over the camera lens in the cell. An officer removed the toilet paper and Jueck started kicking and pounding on the door. He then screamed profane and extreme threats at two corrections officers.
The second complaint details a similar jailhouse incident on April 3, 2020, which began with Jueck captured on video tampering with a cell check button. While officers attempted to move him to a different cell, Jueck flexed his arms and clenched his fists, again uttering profane threats.
An officer deployed pepper spray due to Jueck’s threatening behavior. He then fought against officer efforts to bring him under control, pinning his arms under his body, until a second dose of pepper spray was deployed in his face.
Jonathon David Shaw, 45, Wausau, entered guilty pleas to possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and felony bail jumping. Counts of meth possession, retail theft, misdemeanor bail jumping and drug paraphernalia possession were dismissed but read into the record. All charges carried the repeat offender enhancement.
Shaw received identical sentences for each conviction, four years in prison divided into two years of initial confinement and two years of extended supervision. He must also pay court costs.
Shaw was apprehended when an officer responded to Walmart on the afternoon of April 5, 2020, for a reported retail theft. In the asset protection office, the officer searched Shaw’s backpack, locating a soft case with several jewel bags, a glass pipe, and a small hand torch. The pipe was packed with a white crystal substance. A pack of cigarettes held two more jewel bags with the white substance, all of which tested positive as meth.
The weight of the meth was a total of 27.51 grams, which officers determined was consistent with intent to distribute rather than personal use.
An employee gave a written statement that they had observed Shaw in the electronics department, where he removed a camera from its packaging and concealed it in his pants.
