Week in Review: Sex Assault Case in Sussex From 2011 Will go to Trial
The news from the past week includes a long-awaited trial for an Illinois man accused of a sexual assault in Sussex, a debate over GPAs in Hamilton School District, and a mom in trouble for reportedly whipping her daughter
We led off the week with a database of unpaid taxes in the state, with Sussex still looking for $2.5 Million from delinquent taxpayers.
In a move meant to help students become college and career ready, as well as get students used to being assessed in an on-line environment, the Hamilton School District approved leasing 700 Laptops for almost $400,000. The laptops will be given to elementary and middle schools in the district.
Parents have also asked the Hamilton School Board to determine GPAetermined Differently?
Tuesday was primary election day, and Adam Neylon won the 98th Assembly District primary from among five candidates in the republican primary. He will run unopposed in April, as there was no Democrat on the ballot.
A 28-year-old Sussex woman could spend up to three years in prison after her daughter showed school officials bruises she received from beatings. The girl told her principal that she was usually beaten for getting into trouble by her mother with a white extension cord, a black spoon with three holes or a belt.
It may have taken awhile, but two years later, a man will stand trial for Sussex sexual assault. Rick J. Corbin, of Palatine, IL, is charged with second-degree sexual assault with an unconscious victim after an incident in March of 2011 with a Sussex woman. His trial is set for April 30.
Students gave us the good news: Three Hamilton seniors were awarded the Wisconsin Academic Excellence Scholarship, and two Hamilton students were also chosen as National Merit Finalists.
