CRANDON, Wis. (WXPR) -- A judge has allowed a Lac du Flambeau teen who allegedly tried to stab his mother’s boyfriend to get out of jail on a signature bond prior to his sentencing.
17-year-old Christian Soulier entered a no contest plea to amended felony charges related to a January incident at his mother's Forest County home. Soulier's attorney asked for the signature bond so Soulier could live at his grandmother's home in Lac du Flambeau. Court records indicate District Attorney Charles Simino objected, but substitute Judge Fred Kawalsky granted the signature bond if Soulier stayed with his grandmother at all times.
Soulier initially faced attempted homicide and other charges. Those charges were amended in September and the attempted homicide charge was dropped in return for Soulier pleading no contest to three felony charges.
Until the bond change, he had been in the Forest County jail on a $10,000 cash bond. Soulier is scheduled to be sentenced next Tuesday.
