Beaver Dam man sentenced for threatening police officers
BEAVER DAM, Wis. — A Beaver Dam man was sentenced to state prison for making threats to law enforcement and disorderly conduct, according to a release.
Steven K. Bilke, 47, was sentenced to six years, officials said.
Officers responded on May 9 to a domestic incident in Beaver Dam where Bilke confronted them, according to the release. He later threatened three Beaver Dam officers at the Beaver Dam Community Hospital, telling them he would go to their homes and beat them up.
“Bilke is a career criminal with over 30 prior criminal convictions and has been in and out of prison for the last 20 years,” District Attorney Kurt Klomberg said of Bilke’s sentence.
Bilke was also sentenced to four years of extended supervision after the prison time, which is the maximum penalty allowed by law, according to the release.
