FDL Man Gets Prison Sentence For Domestic Abuse Incident

A Fond du Lac County judge recently sentenced a 38-year-old Fond du Lac man on two counts of strangulation and suffocation and one count of battery. Judge Peter Grimm sentenced Daniel Sease to 15 ½ years in prison and 6 ½ years of extended supervision. A jury found Sease guilty of those charges during a trial in August. Charges stemmed from a domestic abuse incident in October of 2011. In March of 2013 Sease was sentenced to 23 years prison and 8 years of extended supervision on charges from the same incident, but the sentence was vacated in April of 2014. Deputy District Attorney Dennis Krueger says original charges were dismissed because Sease’s lawyer felt Sease had inadequate counsel. New charges were filed in April. During the jury trial Sease was found not guilty of three other charges.
