I have no opinion on the sentence given in this case but I do have a question. Why do sentences given in Langlade county vary so greatly? A case late last year involving a OWI 5th or 6th, Bail jumping and possession of THC received a sentence of 1 year in jail. That included a charge of sexual assault that was pled down. What am I missing? Is it because of a different Judge?
