UW student to enter alternative court for political graffiti, avoiding criminal charges http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/uw-student-to-enter-alternative-court-for-political-graffiti-avoiding-criminal-charges/ http://www.wrjc.com/news/state-news/uw-student-to-enter-alternative-court-for-political-graffiti-avoiding-criminal-charges/#comments Wed, 04 May 2016 14:03:08 +0000 http://www.wrjc.com/?p=124996 More >]]> MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Dane County district attorney says a University of Wisconsin-Madison student won’t be charged for a series of political graffiti messages spray-painted on campus buildings. Instead, the 21-year-old senior will enter a restorative court in Madison. The court allows young, low-level offenders to avoid criminal charges if they take steps such as compensating victims and doing community service. The Wisconsin State Journal (http://bit.ly/23nnqx6 ) reports DA Ismael Ozanne said Tuesday the student is an appropriate candidate for the restorative court program. UW-Madison police arrested the man last month after they said he spray-painted messages such as “White supremacy iz a disease.” The graffiti caused an estimated $4,000 in damage to university buildings. Protesters accused campus officials of caring more about the vandalism than they did about the racism it was protesting.

The girl also suffered brain injuries and had evidence of bleeding within her spine. Gehde told police he didn’t know how the girl suffered her injuries.

(AP) — Wisconsin health officials are defending their investigation of a blood infection discovered in the state. The Division of Public Health responded Tuesday to Assembly Democrats who questioned last week why state health officials delayed telling people that Elizabethkingia was spreading in the state. The Wisconsin Department of Health Services began investigating the outbreak in December. The agency told hospitals to be on the lookout for infections in January but didn’t announce it to the public until March. State Health Officer Karen McKeown says disease detectives have been working aggressively to locate the source of the outbreak. McKeown says health officials are working to provide accurate information and prevent the spread of misleading information. Sixty adult cases of the bacteria have been confirmed. No confirmed cases have been found in children.
