Rubicon Man Enters Plea Deal For Threatening Victims

(Rubicon) A Rubicon man who threatened people he had victimized entered into a deferred prosecution Friday in Dodge County court. Kyle Dylan Usher pled guilty to misdemeanor Disorderly Conduct and no contest to misdemeanor Resisting or Obstructing an Officer and using a Computer Message to Threaten. Judge Steven Bauer withheld a finding of guilt on a felony Stalking charge and, under the terms of the deferred prosecution agreement, Usher will avoid a felony record if he stays out of trouble while on probation for the next two years. According to the criminal complaint, Usher was ordered to pay restitution to his victims for a 2012 incident. Almost immediately upon his successful completion of probation last August, Usher sent a rambling, 12-page letter to his victims recounting his incarceration and blaming them for losing “five years” of his life. In the letter, the 21-year-old demanded not only $10-thousand dollars but also that the victims send him a check every month for the exact same amount as the restitution check he pays to the victims. The August 2017 letter was sent electronically and included a picture of him holding a gun. He told authorities it was not threatening because it was a BB-gun. A subsequent search of his residence turned up two improvised devices that required dismantling by the Dane County Bomb Squad.
