FDL Man Convicted Of Child Neglect

A week after his wife pled no contest to child abuse charges a 47-year-old Fond du Lac man pleads no contest to three counts of misdemeanor child neglect. Troy Riehl made the pleas in Fond du Lac County Court Tuesday. He was sentenced to two years of probation. He was also convicted of two counts of failing to prevent abuse. If he lives up to court conditions during probation those counts will be dropped from his record. Last week his 47-year-old wife Jeana Riehl pled no contest to two child abuse charges. She will be sentenced on March 12th. According to the criminal complaint her abuse of the 11 and 12-year-old boys happened over a six year span. The complaint alleges she used a rolling pin and other items to beat the boys. One of the boys was also allegedly locked in a bathroom for several weeks only being allowed out for a meal.
