Lac du Flambeau man receives DPA in sexual misconduct case

Jamie Taylor
River News Reporter

A 52-year-old Lac du Flambeau man charged in Lincoln County Circuit Court back in August 2017 with three felonies involving alleged sexual misconduct recently reached a deferred prosecution agreement with prosecutors.

To protect the identify of the alleged victims, the River News is not specifying the charges filed against Bryan T. Hoban.

According to a Lincoln County sheriff's office press release issued at the time of Hoban's arrest, the alleged incidents took place in a home in the town of Birch in the summer of 2016 and the spring of 2017 and involved two victims under the age of 18. 

Hoban made his initial appearance in Lincoln County Circuit Court on Aug. 23, 2017, at which time a $5,000 cash bond and $45,000 signature bond were set. According to court records, he posted bond and was released from jail.

After two attempts at holding a preliminary examination in September and October of 2017, on Dec. 7, 2017, Judge Robert Russell found there was probable cause for the case to proceed.

At that time Hoban entered not guilty pleas to the charges.

A series of status conferences were held in the case in 2018 and '19, according to online court records.

On Oct. 23, 2019, a deferred prosecution agreement was filed that specifies the following conditions:

• Hoban shall not be charged with any criminal offense for the next two years.

• The defendant must notify the Lincoln County DA's and Clerk of Courts offices of any address change.

• Hoban may not have any contact with the first victim in the case in any manner unless made through his attorney.

If he fails to comply with the conditions of the agreement, the DA's office could revoke the agreement. If that motion is granted, the prosecution of Hoban would resume. If that were to happen, he faces up to 40 years in prison and $100,000 fines on each of the three class C felonies.
