Beaver Dam Man Sent To Prison For Threatening Police Officers

A Dodge County judge has sentenced a 47-year-old Beaver Dam man to six years in prison and four years of extended supervision for threatening the lives of police officers. Steven Bilke threatened three Beaver Dam Police officers when they responded to a domestic incident last May. At the Beaver Dam Community Hospital later that day he told them he would come to their homes and beat them. District Attorney Kurt Klomberg said law enforcement personnel deserve respect and thanks and his office would vigorously prosecute threats to them.
