A 24-year-old Minocqua woman accused of injuring a corrections officer at the Oneida County Jail in June was charged Sept. 20 with two more crimes in two separate cases.
According to court records, Megan L. Boos was charged with substantial battery (domestic abuse) and felony bail jumping in two separate cases before judge Michael Bloom. The battery charge is a class I felony while the bail jumping is a class H felony.
According to the criminal complaint in the battery case, Boos allegedly cut a man with a knife during an argument Sept. 17, causing a wound that required several stitches to close. When Minoqua police tried to get Boos to come to the door of the residence, she turned out the lights and refused to answer the door, the complaint states. Probation and parole was contacted and an apprehension request was put out for her.
On Tuesday, Sept. 19, Boos appeared at the Oneida County Jail to turn herself in on the apprehension request. According to the criminal complaint in the second case, corrections officers detected the odor of intoxicants on Boos and asked her if she had been drinking.
"Boos stated she had been out having a lot of fun and she was going to turn herself in to jail tonight," the complaint said.
Although Boos is already on a probation hold, Bloom set a $4,000 cash bond in each case.
Boos was scheduled to make an adjourned initial appearance on each of the new charges Oct. 10.
Boos was charged June 5 with battery by prisoner, a class H felony, two misdemeanor charges of resisting or obstructing an officer and one count of disorderly conduct.
According to the criminal complaint in that case, she was found in a Rhinelander bar on June 3 drinking in violation of her probation conditions. She allegedly gave the officers a false identity and then resisted efforts to take her into custody. Once at the Oneida County Jail, she attempted to kick corrections officers and scratched one severely enough that blood was drawn, according to court records.
She is due in court Oct. 10 for a hearing in that case.
