Father Of Escapee Busted For Pot House
The story of the two escapees from Black River Falls just keeps on turning. Now, WIZM news has learned that the father of one of the convicts, 18 year old James Misleveck, has been jailed on pot charges.
41 year old James Misleveck of Elroy is free on a signature bond, and is due back in Juneau court August 22nd. Police were checking out a report that fugitive James Misleveck Jr. was in Elroy last week. They couldn’t find him but when they checked the home of the fugitive’s father, they found marijuana plants and growing tents. Misleveck Sr. now faces two felony counts of manufacturing narcotics and maintaining a drug trafficking place, and two misdemeanor charges of possessing marijuana and drug paraphernalia. Misleveck Jr. and James Newman drove to Florida, where they allegedly attacked a convenience store clerk and got into a police chase before they were finally arrested. They return to court on Monday in Brevard County Florida, as prosecutors decide how to proceed with their Florida and Wisconsin cases. Both men also face federal gun charges.
