Rhinelander man gets jail sentence in elder abuse case
Abigail Bostwick
Of the Lakeland Times

A Rhinelander man received a jail sentence Thursday on a charge of aggravated abuse of an elderly person.

During an appearance before Oneida County Circuit Judge Michael Bloom, Beau Zinsmeister, 34, pled guilty to the felony charge as well as felony false imprisonment. Charges of intentionally subjecting an individual at risk to abuse, criminal damage to property, substantial battery/intentionally cause harm (domestic abuse) and disorderly conduct (domestic abuse) were dismissed on the state's motion pursuant to a plea agreement.

Zinsmeister was sentenced to six months jail to be followed by three years probation. He must also complete an alcohol and drug assessment and mental health assessment and pay a $100 fine.

The charges were filed in late December after Oneida County deputies responded to disturbance at a Rhinelander residence. After kicking in the door, officers found a physical altercation between Zinsmeister and an elderly female, 71. The victim, with "significant injuries on her head and face," was taken by ambulance to the hospital, according to the criminal complaint.
