Judge orders Milwaukee man to have standby counsel serve as his lawyer

MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee man who's on trial for abusing and molesting five of his daughters was ordered Thursday to have a standby counsel become his full-fledged attorney. 

The man was planning to represent himself at the trial -- this giving him a chance to question his daughters on the witness stand. 

Circuit Judge David Borowski said the questioning would amount to intimidation. So Thursday, he ordered standby counsel Scott Anderson to serve as the defendant's lawyer. 

The defendant objected and yelled, "I'm calling the FBI." Anderson told the man to stop, and said he was being foolish. 

Judge Borowski called the defendant's actions "outlandish theatrics." He ordered Anderson and his client to spend the rest of the day working on their defense. 

Jurors were sent home, and the judge said testimony would most likely take place Friday and Monday.
