Madison Man Bound Over For Trial on Stalking Charge


MADISON – Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen announced that James D. Hills was bound over for trial today after Dane County Circuit Court Judge Sarah O'Brien found there to be probable cause that Hills committed a felony stalking offense.


According to the Wisconsin Department of Justice criminal complaint, James D. Hills became upset after being convicted for a disorderly conduct municipal ticket. For the next 10 months, Hills engaged in stalking behavior, which included frightening phone calls and letters directed toward the assistant city attorney who prosecuted the case.


A criminal complaint is a document that makes allegations of criminal conduct. The defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in a court of law.


This matter was investigated by the City of Madison Police Department. The Department of Justice Office of Crime Victim Services has been providing victim services in this case. Assistant Attorney General Eric D. Défort represents the State of Wisconsin in this prosecution.
