Evans Pleads To Theft Charges

10/6/11 – A Beaver Dam man pleaded “no contest” Wednesday to charges that he stole thousands of dollars worth of scrap metal. 24-year-old Joseph Evans took stainless steel sheets from Supreme Manufacturing in May of 2010. A sentencing hearing is scheduled for October 21. This is the second time Evans had a plea deal worked out in the case. In April, Dodge County prosecutors rescinded a plea deal after Evans was charged with First Degree Sexual Assault of a Child. Authorities say Evans fondled a pre-school age victim in March. Evans is free after posting a $10,000 cash bond and has a five-day jury trial on the molestation charges set to begin in mid-January.
