Fond Du Lac Man Sentenced On Two Counts Of Homicide By Negligent Operation Of A Vehicle

(Fond du Lac) A 35-year-old North Fond du Lac man was sentenced yesterday afternoon on two counts of homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle. Travis Wollersheim was sentenced to 12 months of conditional jail time, 3 years of probation, and 120 hours of community service. He ran into the back of a car with his SUV in a construction zone on Interstate 41 in Fond du Lac in June of 2016. The collision killed a 26-year-old David Button and his 8-year-old son Joseph both from Neenah. Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says, “It was incredibly moving when Wollersheim apologized to the victims’ family in court and many of them the defendant and then proceeded to hug him.”
