Inmate Who Threatened FDL County DA Sentenced
A former Waupun Correctional inmate who threatened to decapitate Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney has been sentenced to two additional years in prison. With the current sentence he is serving James Luke will be in prison until 2038. The 29-year-old Luke was sentenced in Dodge County Court Wednesday to the two years in prison and two years of extended supervision. Dodge County District Attorney Kurt Klomberg prosecuted the case. He says, “Threatening statements and acts in retaliation to the work of a prosecutor will not be allowed to pass without a strong response.” While at Waupun Correctional in March of 2016 Luke wrote a threatening letter to Toney. Luke claimed to be acting on behalf of ISIS, but no actual connection to the terrorist group is believed to exist.
