Three years ago, Christopher Pocknell of Onalaska was convicted of stalking his ex-wife by putting a satellite tracking device on her car.
Pocknell was placed on probation for that offense. Now, he's accused of trying to do the same thing to his latest girlfriend. And that's not all, according to assistant D-A Crystal Jensen...she says Pocknell also lied to police about whether he possessed any guns as a convicted felon.
Bond was set on Friday for Pocknell...15-thousand dollars cash. Official charges could be filed on Monday.

Ryan says Republicans led by Governor Scott Walker fixed the problems in Madison, and he expects the party will fix Washington.
