Deferred judgment entered for sex offender violation

A man looking to live in the Oneida County area without first following his state-required sex offender obligations has been given a deferred judgment.

Brett Ginter, 23, made an appearance before Judge Michael Bloom Thursday in Oneida County Circuit Court with attorney Mary Roth Burns. He was facing felonies including sex offender fail to update information second offense and traffic fine operating while revoked and misdemeanors possession of THC and possession of drug paraphernalia in a total of three cases.

The charges were filed following a traffic stop by an Oneida County sheriff's deputy Dec. 3.

A routine check and search showed Ginter had no license, a loaded pistol, more than 25 grams of marijuana and drug items inside his car, according to the complaint. Further, the deputy learned Ginter was homeless and traveling between states but attempting to move to Rhinelander. He had been living in Clintonville, while his driver's license said he resided in Iola, the criminal complaint states.

In court, the state moved to dismiss the traffic charge as well as a charge of possession of drug paraphernalia. The possession of THC charge was amended from a misdemeanor to a forfeiture. Ginter pled no contest to that fine and was ordered to pay $263.50.

Deferred entry of judgment was ordered on the sex offender violation, to which Ginter pled not guilty. Bloom further modified his cash bond to a signature bond, with the stipulation the cash be used to costs and fines.

A review hearing is set for March 1, 2021. Ginter's current address is listed as Iola.
