More heavy rain forecast for Northeast Wisconsin …

and that means a Flash Flood Watch.

A flash flood watch is in effect for some of Northeastern Wisconsin from 1 to 10 p.m. today, with the potential of 1 to 3 inches of rain.

“It almost sounds like a snow forecast, doesn’t it? But no, this is rain,” said Dan Clark, meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Ashwaubenon.

Counties affected include: Brown, Manitowoc, Kewaunee, Winnebago, Calumet and Outagamie.

Showers and thunderstorms will develop this morning, producing heavy rainfall by this afternoon, Clark said. (Source: Green Bay Press Gazette)

Woman charged in porn case

This is disturbing.

A woman appeared in Manitowoc County court Monday on a dozen charges of sexual assault and child sexploitation.

The woman allegedly touched the 2, 5 and 7-year-old children and took pictures of them which she then shared to be sold.

Court documents show she agreed to send the photos to a man she knew and he was going to sell them on the Internet. The man who was going to sell them told authorities he got about 1,000 pictures from the woman over a 2-month period.

The woman has admitted to taking the pornographic photos of her children with her cell phone and sent them to the man. She’s posted her $1,000 bond and isn’t in jail. (Source: WTAQ)

Only a $1,000 bond? Seriously?  What type of judges are in Manitowoc County?  This woman if found guilty better have the book thrown at her.

Avery denied new trial

Good.  The crime committed was despicable.

A Manitowoc County judge has denied Steven Avery’s request for a new trial.

The Mishicot man was convicted in the 2005 slaying of 25-year-old Teresa Halbach. He was sentenced to life in prison with no chance of parole.

In arguing for a new trial, attorneys for the 47-year-old Avery alleged that his previous trial was marred by a number of procedural errors.

They said one juror was granted dismissal even though deliberations had already begun. They also said the juror didn’t give a strong enough reason to justify dismissal.

But Judge Patrick L. Willis wasn’t convinced. He ruled Monday that the court used its best discretion when dismissing the juror, who said the trial was putting strain on his marriage. Willis notes the defense also agreed to the dismissal. (Source: Green Bay Press Gazette)

So he stays in prison.  Considering the gruesomeness of his crime that seems unfair, but since Wisconsin doesn’t have the death penalty.
