There is a Wisconsin County Judge and District Attorney who issued a warrant for an arrest based on a Detective's report, which if either the Judge or DA would have actually read and verified with the documentation noted in the Detective's report, would have seen that the Detective altered information so as to achieve the warrant and the end result of jailing a person with a full time local job, a full time local business, 2 minor children, a local home and all family members living in local vacinity. This victim had no previous history of violent or criminal crimes, was not a threat to the public or community in any foreseeable manner, and had not even had a traffic/speeding violation in the past 11 years.
The county jail was full, this victim had to share a cell with another jailed person, lost their full time job, and now is facing foreclosure on their business due to the jail sentence. There is ample documentation of all these facts along with the transcript from the hearing in which the judge issuing the warrant was substituted and the substituting judge dismissed the count which was the initial reason for the warrant during the preliminary hearing.
The US Constitution sets forth checks and balances in which the police are to be checked by the judicial so that the police are not able to jail whomever they want without due cause.
These checks and balances are at the base of responsibilities from which judges and district attorneys are to work within and glean their professional power from. The Constitution guarantees this. Yet, due to personal prejudices which can also be documented, both the judge and district attorney joined the detective's "game" by not verifying or at least asking to see the documentation alluded to in the detective's sworn statement. The statement was the basis for the warrant, not a summons, causing a devastating turn of events and the statement was deemed false and misleading.
Why the warrant (not a summons) on a person with no history which would lend to immediate need for jailing the person? Why excessive bail on a person with so many ties and with a cooperative history towards police enforcement, even showing up for court when not being served? Why?

Most people who are put in jail deserve to be there. Maybe Ms Sperl should not accuse someone of stretching the truth when that is in fact what she is doing. She claims to have no violent history yet she was arrested on 6-9-00 for disorderly conduct. She claims to have no traffic or speeding ticket in 11 years when in fact she had a non-registered vehicle in 99, a speedometer violation in 96 and a speeding ticket in 96. Honey, thats less than 11 years. And those of us living in the area know the history behind all of the charges that she is currently facing. Public record. Look her up in CCAPS. Makes for interesting reading. So my advise to Ms. Sperl is that before she starts throwing stones at our Judges and police, she should look in her own backyard.

After reading your comment I see why you didn't give your name. I know the detective involved in the case and his reputation for selective report writing is actually one of the lesser evils he's known for. Also if you do a search for victims of law you will find an editorial titled Justice sometimes dumb as well as blind. Maybe you should also try a search on the name Wineski. I spent years working to expose him as a sexuall predator that worked right along with the Trempealeau County Sheriff's Dept. If you don't think I know what I'm talking about listen to the Bad Cop No Donut link on the Wineski links.
The detective Patricia speaks of lied to me about writing and filing reports following the burglary of my house by Whitehall and refused to speak to witnesses. Trempealeau County selective law enforcement is a way of life to that system.
So what's your name? You obviously spent some time looking up Patricia. Try looking into the Trempealeau County cover ups. Loser!

Patricia Erickson Barnes Sperl is a crook. How do I know because she has told me about numerous scams she has undertaken-the list is long and disgraceful. Why did she tell me all of her wrongdoings-because I'm unfortunately related to her and she trusted me. She is a crook and an unfit mother.

I too am faced with some serious issues related to corruption in this jurisdiction that leads from a sheriffs deputy to the ADA. My attorney , my soon to be x wifes attorney and my childrens guardian are in the middle.
At one point I had to contact 911. Because I would not agree to my soon to be xs(xs) terms of settling our divorce her and my mother in law who got in her car drove to my home and assaulted me, the officers were going to arrest me had my children not witnessed what happened, the point is after obstructing justice, trying to have me falsely arrested they never even ticketed them or made an arrest for domestic violence.Other issues, my address kept getting changed so I wouldn't get notices and I was convicted because of the notices going to my xs eventhough we had an ob going divorce and they had my correct address. Another time my x was trying to force my daughter into telling her what the kids and the guardian talked about, because she would not my x called me to pick my daughter up then the sheriff claiming my 12 year old was out of control and when they got there tried to have me arrested, now facing charges. The whole thing is the attorney I hired did not disclose he was the xs fathers friend and served as an attorney for him also. The guardian whom my attorney recommended and my attorney, allowed my children and I to be harassed,intimidated ,stolen from,abused and a number of other serious things that have occured. In my case the officer didn't even speak to the kids, considering they witnessed all of this. Come to find out him and my attorney work as partners in a law firm together. My attorney gave my x a restraining order by not showing in court. I have court in 2 days for my divorce and had to fire my attorney after giving him 4200 dollars. The restraining order wasn't because of domestic abuse either, it was a tool used to force me from my home so my x could mover 1 of 2 men she was cheating on me with into t he home. After being primary care giver to my children for 9 years while she spent her spare time for the last 5 years sleeping because of her ambien addiction giving nothing except financial support to the kids and I, this divorce started because I gave her an ultimatum to clean it up, my kids were crying and needed her attention. With the help of my attorney my x is now trying to take them from me after vowing to ruin my life and assuring me her and her attorney had the means to do whatever she wanted and she did do whatever she wanted. There is something wrong with this jurisdiction.

This is obviously the estranged cousin who is known for being an ambulance chaser, gold digger. Good luck, honey, you moneys running out and you need to drag someone down with you. Your husband left you, you had to sell items to pay him off and you are unhappy. Good luck. Oh, by the way, burdocks are not rhubarb plants.

Be careful, you are the "fake it until you make it" relative who wanted Pat and a friend to remove furnace(s), etc... from your foreclosed rental properties. Then after Pat and her friend renovated your home, increasing its value by ~$25,000, making it rentable FOR FREE - you didn't pay anything for their labor, you "stiffed" her by not simply paying for their gas money. GAS MONEY! You are vindictive and want to create problems just to be a dick. Surprised you are still married... You are a disgrace no matter how much you "fake it until you make it" Good luck.

Sounds like a whacky brother who has to hide out in a foreign country d/t financial problems. "Fake it until you make it is his motto." Your address gives you away. You are a low-life, self centered, egotistical brat who is pissed because you couldn't take advantage of Pat any longer. Grow up and get a clue. Judge Damon doesn't like you either. Stay out of Tremp Co.

Patricia has the biggest heart and often gets taken advantage of because of this. She lives for her family. If she isn't doing something for or with her kids, she is working or sleeping. Simple but devoted. She has helped more people in the past month than most people help in their lifetime. You don't know her if you don't know this.
