A former Menasha man was found guilty to charges of burglary-armed with a dangerous weapon and a felon possessing a firearm due to a no contest plea last Thursday.  Online court records show that Judge Paul Curran sentenced 25-year-old Michael Edict to 2 ½ years of initial confinement and 5 years of extended supervision for the first charge, which is to be served consecutively to the sentence Edict is currently serving.  Judge Curran also imposed and stayed a sentence of 4 years imprisonment for the second charge. Charges of armed robbery with threat of force, battery, and theft of movable property less than or equal to $2500 were dismissed but read-in during sentencing.

According to the criminal complaint, Edict had allegedly entered a residence with another man in the Town of Armenia. Both men were masked and armed and ordered the women at the residence to give them their money and purses.
