Supreme Court Issues Decision On Brantner Drug Sentencing

(Waupun) Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney says overall a Supreme Court decision this week regarding convicted murderer Dennis Brantner was a victory for the county court. The high court ruled it was appropriate to try Brantner in Fond du Lac County and not Kenosha County on drug charges. He tried to smuggle prescription drugs into jail after his arrest for the 1990 murder of 18-year-old Berit Beck, whose body was found near Waupun. The court agreed with Brantner on two of the ten drug-related charges, which means Fond du Lac county could resentence him on the drug charges.
