Wisconsin girl tells police she has been abused for years

Posted on Wednesday, March 14th, 2012 at 7:37 pm    

A frail 15-year-old girl has recanted a story to police detailing abuse, both mental and sexual, stemming from her own family members.

The teen is seen in a video testimony revealing that she has been living in the basement of her house for several years, and although she has tried to escape, her parents have found her and brought her back.

She has tried to escape because she claims that her father, stepmother, and stepbrother have repeatedly abused her, and starved her. She says that she was forced to eat food from the garbage, and that her stepbrother made her perform sexual acts on him numerous times. The trial for her parents is set to begin on Friday.

A Wisconsin college student went missing early Saturday morning after he was out celebrating his 21st birthday with friends. He was last seen around 1:15 a.m. leaving Joe’s Bar.

Police believe that the student was either walking to his own residence, or the residence of his girlfriend’s, but did not make it to either of those locations. The student’s body was discovered today in the Wisconsin river by the police.

Negligence of ship captain causes accident

Posted on Monday, January 16th, 2012 at 10:43 pm    

The captain of the Costa Concordia is responsible for the demise of the ship after he was negligent in choosing an alternate path for the ship over the one previously mapped out for him. According to Carnival, the owners of the Costa Concordia, the captain made a devastating mistake when he chose to go too close to land with the ship.

The ship hit a large area of rocks, creating a 160-foot hole in the side of the ship. The cruise liner filled up with water at an alarming rate and people began to panic. The evacuation drill had not been done yet and therefore people were unsure of how to proceed. There were people jumping off of decks and attempting to swim to shore and there were also people lunging for lifeboats.

Out of the 4,200 people aboard the ship, there were six casualties and currently 16 people are still missing. Rescue workers are doing all that they possibly can in order to locate additional survivors.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims’ families and friends during this tragic time.

Two hospitalized after hit and run accident

Posted on Wednesday, December 28th, 2011 at 10:35 pm    

A hit and run accident that took place Sunday night in Sheboygan, Wisconsin left two people critically injured.

The accident was caused by falling metal from the back of a red pick-up truck. The metal blocked roadways behind the truck and one 22-year-old driver tried to maneuver her car around the debris but lost control of the vehicle. Her car rolled over before coming to a complete stop in a ditch. Both people inside of the vehicle were severely injured.

The driver of the pick-up truck initially pulled his car over but then drove off. The metal that was housed in the truck bed was stolen and there is reason to believe that the truck was used in the theft of the materials. Police are still looking for the truck as well as the driver.

Hunting accidents more likely to be caused by young hunters

Posted on Monday, November 21st, 2011 at 6:51 pm    

Analysis of hunting accidents in the state of Wisconsin shows that young hunters are more likely to be responsible for a shooting accident. The report states that 18 percent of licensed hunters across the state are at or below 21-years-old. Yet, this 18 percent has been linked to 27 percent of shooting accidents in the last ten years in Wisconsin.

These young hunters are also responsible for 5 of the 30 fatal shooting accidents that have taken place. Most of these accidents were caused by individuals who had completed the Wisconsin hunter safety course. The safety surrounding hunting in Wisconsin is at a great level but there are still instances where safety is just simply overlooked.

This hunting season it is crucial to be careful when operating hunting equipment and to always be aware of your surroundings.

If you have been injured due to the negligence of a hunter, please contact the Wausau personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. by calling 800-242-2874 today.

Pedestrian accidents occur more often at night. This Halloween it is important to be aware of your surroundings so that accidents can be avoided.

There were 59,000 pedestrians injured in the U.S. in 2009 due to car accidents. Of those 59,000 that were hurt, 4,900 died.
