WCI Inmate Pleads To Attacking Guard

A 33-year-old inmate at Waupun Correctional Institution that assaulted a corrections officer pled no contest to a battery by prisoner charge. Joshua Scolman was in Dodge County Court for a plea hearing this week. A second charge of substantial battery was read into the record and dismissed. He was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine and over $3,000 in restitution. In February of last year he attacked a guard fracturing his eye socket and broke a tooth. Surveillance cameras caught the incident.
