He stood silent to charges of 1st degree child sexual assault with a child under the age of 13, incest with a child, child enticement, and intimidation of a witness. Online court records show that Judge Roemer entered not guilty pleas for the four charges and scheduled a two day jury trial in March. The cash bond for Ramczyk was modified and he may post six percent or $3,000 of the original $50,000 cash bond. Conditions of the bond include having no contact with the victims or anyone under the age of 18, with the exception of his one-year-old son and Ramczyk cannot leave the Juneau or Sauk County and he must personally appear for all court dates.

A criminal complaint filed accuses Ramczyk of having sexual contact with a 10-year-old girl between April 2014 and June 2014. When the victim’s mother confronted him about the allegations, he allegedly threatened her.

Ramczyk is innocent until proven guilty.

(AP) – Wisconsin politicians, business and agriculture leaders and advocates are reacting to President Barack Obama’s plans to shield as many as 5 million immigrants from deportation. The Washington, D.C.-based Migration Policy Institute says there were about 76,000 immigrants living illegally in Wisconsin in 2012. Under Obama’s plan, deportation protections would be extended to parents of U.S. citizens and permanent residents, as long as those parents have been in the country at least five years. Democrats are generally praising Obama’s action, while Gov. Scott Walker called it illegal. Immigrant rights advocates support the president, while the state’s business and agriculture community are more circumspect. Wisconsin Farm Bureau spokesman Casey Langan says Obama’s plan is “not the comprehensive, long-term fix that agriculture is seeking.

(AP) – Contractors have completed a more than $1 million renovation of a unique circus building which once housed train cars in Baraboo before the “greatest show on Earth” was taken across the country. The $1.2 million upgrade to the Ringling Bros. train shed is now finished after nearly a decade of planning. Crews replaced almost 300 windows, installed fire hydrants and upgraded nearby roads to prepare the 105-year-old building for its eventual opening to Circus World Museum visitors. The Baraboo News Republic (http://bit.ly/1uNPdJL ) reports the 80-plus railroad cars owned by the Ringlings were repaired and repainted in the shed near the Baraboo River during the winter. Museum officials say it’s the longest wooden railroad structure in America. Circus World hopes to incorporate displays that highlight the role the shed played in Ringling circus’ national success.
