Man sentenced for fraud involving federal crop loan

A former Bloomington man was sentenced Thursday, Jan. 5, by U.S. District Judge James Peterson to three years probation and ordered to pay $85,424.51 in restitution for fraudulent conversion and sale of crops owned by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Farm Service Agency (USDA FSA).

Kelly Wachter, 34, pleaded guilty to the above charges on Oct. 3, 2016, according to John Vaudreuil, U.S. attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin.

Wachter admitted, during his plea, that in May 2014, he obtained a $210,000 loan from the USDA FSA for the purpose of planting corn and soybean crops on farmland he rented in Bloomington. The crops were considered collateral for the loan, and the proceeds from the sale of the crops were to be used first to pay the FSA loan.

Woman charged with possession of meth, resisting an officer

A 30-year-old Prairie du Chien woman has been charged in Crawford County Circuit Court with one count of possession of methamphetamine and one count of resisting an officer.

If convicted of both counts, Chelsay C. Wille faces up to four years and four months imprisonment and $20,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint, following a traffic stop, a Prairie du Chien police officer noticed the odor of marijuana coming from inside of Wille’s vehicle. The officer conducted a field sobriety test and then arrested Wille, who began to resist and struggle, the complaint said.

A digital scale and meth residue were found in Wille’s jacket pocket. A baggie of meth was later found under the back seat of the squad car where Wille had been sitting while being transported to the jail, the complaint said.
