Shilling Praises Additional Assistant District Attorney Positions

LA CROSSE – Today, Senator Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) was joined by Department of Administration Secretary Joel Brennan, La Crosse District Attorney Tim Gruenke, and La Crosse County Sheriff Jeff Wolf, to announce new Assistant District Attorney positions for La Crosse and Monroe Counties. Following the announcement, Senator Shilling released the following statement.

“Our region has championed treatment alternatives and diversion programs to address backlogs and reduce recidivism for nonviolent offenders. We’ve seen a lot of local success, but a lack of funding and support in the past has prevented the progress we want to see. Thanks to the leadership of the Governor Evers though the budget process, we now have a statewide approach to help ease caseloads for District Attorneys and ensure that justice for victims and our communities is served in a timely manner.”
