10/19/17 – An inmate at Waupun Correctional who is accused of assaulting a prison guard made his initial appearance in court yesterday. Jesus Quintero appeared via video and is charged with one felony count of Battery By Prisoner for punching a corrections officer last month. The 29-year-old was upset about not being able to use the shower, charged at the guard and struck him repeatedly in the face. Quintero got into a boxing stance, was pepper sprayed and then cooperated after a brief struggle. If convicted, he faces an additional 12 years in prison. A signature bond was set yesterday at $1000 dollars and a judge will decide in December if there is enough evidence to order a trial.
