Waupun Inmate Arraigned For Attack

5/25/17 – A Waupun Correctional Institution inmate accused of stabbing a corrections officer was arraigned Wednesday.  Daniel Pickett pled not guilty to a half dozen felony counts including Battery by Prisoners, Strangulation and Suffocation, and Bail Jumping, all as a repeat offender. In November, the 23-year-old allegedly attacked the officer who entered a cell to turn on a light, locked the door, wrapped his arm around her neck, and stabbed her 22 times while she reached for her pepper spray. If convicted on all charges, Pickett faces up to 45 additional years in prison.
