WAUKESHA COUNTY – A Wisconsin Supreme Court nominee is under scrutiny for a violent attack in Illinois.
Michael Liu, 36, of Wisconsin, was given two days to jail report a domestic violence case in Waukesha County.
During that time, prosecutors say he traveled to the southern suburbs of Crete and violently assaulted his in-laws.
Judge Jennifer Dorow had sentenced him to prison the day before the attack.
The Dorow State Supreme Court campaign team said in a statement it was tough on the first-time defendant, who had no criminal record.
Wisconsin’s Democratic Party called his decision disastrous.
