Waupun Teen Gets Deferred Prosecution For Stabbing

6/6/17 – A Waupun teen who stabbed another teenager entered into a plea agreement with Dodge County prosecutors yesterday. Nicholas Core was placed on deferred prosecution for a felony count of Injury by Negligent Use of a Weapon meaning he will avoid a felony record if he stays out of trouble while on probation for the next two years. The 18-year-old was convicted of misdemeanor Endangering Safety with Use of a Dangerous Weapon and Disorderly Conduct and had a six month jail sentence imposed and stayed.  In the September 2016 incident, a group of teens in Markesan took issue with something posted to social media about a friend and drove to Waupun to confront the perpetrator.  Core says he was defending his friend when a fight broke out and claims the victim must have accidently fallen on a knife during the melee.  An 18-year-old Randolph man sustained a two-inch cut to his arm.
