NFDL Man Accused Of Strangulation Caught

He had been eluding police for weeks, but he’s finally been caught, and now has been charged with multiple felonies in a violent domestic abuse case.


Hayden Gieschen of North Fond du Lac faces a felony strangulation and suffocation charge and a felony false imprisonment charge in addition to two disorderly conduct misdemeanors. Police say Gieschen grabbed the neck of the mother of his child back in December, picked her up and threw her. 


Gieschen was also convicted on the same charge back in 2018, in an incident with another female who was the mother of another one of his children. Gieschen served six months in jail for that charge. He could face up to 22 years in prison for the current felonies he’s charged with.
