Sparta Man Still Needs Lawyer

A Sparta man, who was charged with vehicular homicide for a 2009 drunk driving crash that killed his brother, was back in a Monroe County courtroom this morning. 26 year old Jason Schodeberg was arrested 2 weeks ago for allegedly driving drunk and crashing a vehicle July 26th, 2009 on Highway 33 near Cashton. His brother, 30 year old Glenn Schodeberg of Leon, was found pinned beneath it. He was dead at the scene.

 

Schodeberg is still waiting for the county to appoint him an attorney. At the time of the accident, investigators could not determine who was driving the vehicle.


DNA evidence recovered from the car's air bags and witnesses helped police determine Jason Schodeberg was, in fact, the driver. Schodeberg appeared in court last week on several charges, including homicide by intoxicated use of a vehicle. He is still in jail on a $5 thousand cash bond. He will be back in court on Friday.
