Beaver Dam Man Gets Prison For Violating Probation

11/3/17 – A Beaver Dam man who was convicted in connection with the violent assault of a teenager was sentenced to six years in prison Friday for violating the terms of his probation. Edward Linn tried to choke, punch, and bite the 15-year-old victim while forcing himself on her in November 2014.  She was able to fight him off and fled the residence. Linn entered into a deferred prosecution agreement last year, which allowed him to avoid both prison time and having to register as a sex offender if he stayed out of trouble but the 23-year-old broke probation in October of 2016. When released, Linn will be placed on extended supervision for nine years.
