Former Johnsonville Employee Sentenced to Federal Prison

A former Johnsonville Sausage employee will spend the next four years behind bars for putting foreign objects in sausages while working at the Sheboygan Falls facility.
28-year old Jonathan Tilman Lane of Keil was sentenced to federal prison on Thursday. He will also spend three years on supervised release and was ordered to pay just over $42,000 to cover the product lost by the company.
Lane is accused of placing wire connector and cigarette paper in sausages while working on the processing line. Johnsonville reports none of the tampered products ever left the facility.
