Being drunk in court costs woman plea deal

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) - Being drunk in court has cost a 25-year-old Wausau woman a plea agreement she reached to resolve three cases involving two felonies and 11 misdemeanors, according to online Marathon County Circuit Court records.

Storie Kunz, 25, reached a deal on Tuesday that convicted her of prostitution, injury by negligent use of a weapon, possession of marijuana and battery, court records said. She was sentenced to three years probation. The charges were included in three separate cases filed between April and September last year.

About two hours after she was sentenced, Kunz was back in court, and Circuit Judge Jill Falstad was told that a probation officer determined Kunz was intoxicated in violation of her bail, court records said. Prosecutors asked that the plea deal and sentencing be nullified, the judge agreed and Kunz was taken to jail, court records said.

The next day, she was charged with one felony count of bail jumping and one misdemeanor count of bail jumping. Falstad set a $1,000 signature bond, with $250 cash required. Another condition was "absolute sobriety," court records said.

Kunz's attorney, Kathryn Jackan of Wausau, declined comment Friday.

Assistant District Attorney Elisabeth Cramer was gone from her office and unavailable Friday, a receptionist said.
