Plea hearing scheduled for Foslid on multiple felonies

By LeAnn R. Ralph

MENOMONIE — A plea hearing on multiple felonies for a former Colfax resident Jacob Foslid was scheduled in Dunn County Circuit Court July 10.

Foslid appeared in court with his attorney, Stephen Muza, July 2.

The 21-year-old, who is charged with numerous felonies for drugs and bail jumping, along with a variety of misdemeanors, including battery to an unborn child, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia, is now in custody in the Dunn County Jail after failing to appear for several scheduled court hearings.

Muza told the court he had received an offer for a plea deal from Dunn County District Attorney James Peterson only minutes before the July 2 hearing began.

Muza said he had reviewed the offer with Foslid briefly, and that more than likely, Foslid would be entering a plea on several felonies.

A pre-sentence investigation will be required, and the plea hearing should be scheduled for 30 minutes, Muza said.

On June 1, 2012, Foslid was arrested for felony possession with intent to deliver marijuana; felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver; and three misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia; marijuana and methamphetamine. A $500 cash bond was posted June 4, 2012.

Foslid subsequently failed to show up for several court hearings after that.

On October 30 of last year, Foslid was arrested for felony possession of amphetamine with intent to deliver; felony possession of methamphetamine with intent to deliver; felony bail jumping; and misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia. A cash bond of $2,000 was posted on November 1, 2012. The court issued a bench warrant for Foslid’s arrest, and the cash bond was forfeited November 9, 2012.

A bench warrant for Foslid’s arrest also was issued March 15 of this year, and the bench warrant was served March 18.

In May of this year, Foslid appeared in court for misdemeanor battery to an unborn child, misdemeanor domestic battery and misdemeanor disorderly conduct. He also was arrested on two felony counts of bail jumping. Foslid signed a $1,000 cash bond.

On June 5, Foslid was arrested on felony counts of fleeing an officer and felony bail jumping. A $5,000 cash bond was set in the case.

Foslid was scheduled to appear in court before the Honorable Rod Smeltzer at 3:30 p.m. on July 10.
