DOJ Crackdown On Child Prostitution

Written by

 

The state Department of Justice says 10 children have been rescued and 100 suspects have been arrested in Wisconsin as part of a nationwide, child sex trafficking crackdown led by the FBI.

Nationally, the FBI says it has rescued 105 children who were forced into prostitution in the United States and arrested 150 people it described as pimps and others in a series of raids in 76 American cities.

The Wisconsin crackdown was done in and around Milwaukee, Madison, Wisconsin Dells and the Fox Valley. Fifteen agents from the Wisconsin DOJ and officers from 14 local law enforcement agencies participated in the three-day crackdown, known as "Operation Cross Country."

The FBI says the victims, almost all girls, range in age from 13 to 17.

All the witnesses have been called in a La Crosse murder trial...meaning that the defendant will not be on the stand.

The defense for Jeffrey Lepsch presented only two witnesses ...Lepsch's wife and mother, who both said that he is not a violent person. Lepsch is accused of killing Paul and A.J. Petras at their camera store in La Crosse during a robbery last fall. The prosecution had more testimony today about finding items stolen from May's Photo at Lepsch's home. Closing arguments will be presented to the jury on Tuesday.

Surveyor Scammers In La Crosse County

Written by

On Wednesday La Crosse County Sheriff’s Deputies took a complaint from the small community of Stevenstown, located in La Crosse County between Holmen and Mindoro.

The victim indicated that two subjects, both male/white in their late 20s, approached the residence and posed as surveyors. One man convinced the victim to show him the residence’s lot lines, while the other male subject entered the residence and searched through drawers. However, the victim did not notice anything missing from the house after the subjects left.

The two subjects were driving a full-size, white SUV. Please be on the lookout for this type of scam. If anyone has any further information, call the Sheriff’s Department.

They're not proposing a ban just yet, but staffers with the Food and Drug Administration are saying that adding menthol to cigarettes could make smoking more dangerous than with regular cigarettes.

La Crosse County health educator Paula Silha wants the addition of menthol to be studied in all tobacco products...especially ones aimed at young people.

 

Silha tells us that menthol products offer an easy way for teens to pick up the tobacco habit. The FDA says menthol can make smoking more pleasant, and harder to quit.

Guilty on two counts...but 'not guilty' on a third.

William Petty of La Crosse has been convicted of accidentally shooting and injuring another man in the back of the neck. He's also guilty of possessing a firearm as a convicted felon...but a jury acquitted him on the charge of intimidating a witness. Petty was handling a gun inside a La Crosse apartment last March when the gun went off. A bullet went through the back of Michael Jameson's neck. Petty will be sentenced on September 20th.

The state crime lab found a handprint from Jeff Lepsch at the scene of a double murder in La Crosse.

A fingerprint expert from the lab, Karley Hujet, testifies at Lepsch's murder trial that one print from Lepsch has been found on a glass display case from May's Photo in La Crosse.  Lepsch is accused of killing Paul and A.J. Petras at the photo store last fall, but he claims he never went to that shop. Earlier testimony today from another crime lab expert said no DNA from Lepsch could be found at the murder scene.
