Hicks Sentenced To 15-Yr. Prison Term, 10-Yr. Extended Supervision

Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric J. Toney announced Friday afternoon that Desmond F. Hicks has been sentenced to a bifurcated 25 year prison term by the Honorable Richard J. Nuss. The bifurcated sentence is 15 years of initial prison confinement and 10 years of extended supervision for an Armed Robbery conviction. All other sentences for the remaining counts were concurrent to the armed robbery sentence.

The sentence stems from convictions of Armed Robbery with Use of Force and First Degree Reckless Endangering Safety in 20CF618; Substantial Battery – Domestic Abuse in 18CF506; Battery in 19CM809; and Burglary, Receiving Stolen Property, Possession of a Firearm by a Felony Possession of Narcotic Drugs, and Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place in 18CF639. Various other charges were dismissed and read-into the court record for consideration at sentencing. The charges stem from incidents involving Hicks that occurred back in December of 2017 and March of 2018.

District Attorney Eric Toney stated “Hicks was convicted of vicious acts of violence against multiple women and our community is undoubtedly safer as a result of this prison sentence. I urge those suffering from domestic violence to consider any available resources.
