DA refuses to say why Wepking wasn’t charged

 The Columbia County District Attorney has declined to make public documents concerning the case against former Sauk Prairie police officer Jaime Wepking, declining a Star News’ records request. 
In its investigation of Wepking firing a taser at an on-duty officer while intoxicated, the Rock County Sheriff’s Department recommend charges. The investigation stated, “we believe there is probable cause to arrest Jamie Wepking.” The charges were: disarming a peace officer, and endangering safety by the negligent operation or handling of a dangerous weapon. The recommendation was sent to the Sauk County District Attorney. Due to a possible conflict of interest, it was referred to the Columbia County District Attorney. 
The Columbia County District Attorney chose to not press charges and closed the case without explanation.

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
