A prosecutor has charged a western Wisconsin police chief with a misdemeanor for allegedly signing a tea party leader up for solicitations from gay dating, pornography and federal health care websites.
Monroe County District Attorney Kevin Croninger charged Town of Campbell Police Chief Tim Kelemen on Thursday with one count of unlawful use of a computerized communication system. The chief would face up to $1,000 in fines and 90 days in jail if he's convicted.
According to a criminal complaint, Kelemen told investigators he signed La Crosse Tea Party leader Greg Luce up for websites because he felt Luce his supporters to harass his officers.
Kelemen's attorney says he's brokered a deal with Croninger that calls for Kelemen to continue counseling and perform 40 hours of community service.
