Town of Marion Police Chief Convicted of Forgery

 

WAUTOMA - Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced today that the town of Marion Police Chief, Tracy Schwersenska, appeared in Waushara County Circuit Court before visiting Judge William M. McMonigal and entered a plea of no contest and was found guilty of the sole count in the criminal complaint.  She was sentenced to six months in jail imposed and stayed with one year probation, a fine of $250 plus costs, AODA assessment and follow-through treatment, mental health assessment and follow-through treatment.

 

Police Chief Schwersenska's conviction of forgery resulted from purchasing the product ephedrine and falsely filling out the log which requires buyers to print their name and address and sign their name in order to make the purchase.

 

This matter was investigated by the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation.  Assistant Attorney General Erik Peterson represented the state in this case.
