No decision reached in Schroeder case


La Crosse, WI (WXOW) - Both the prosecution and defense have asked a judge for more time to determine whether a former Holmen man should be committed for treatment for sexually violent behavior.

Chad Schroeder was sentenced in 1991 to 16 years in prison for the sexual assault of 5 girls younger than 16.

He was set for release in December 2010.

Just before that release, the state intervened, asking the court to declare Schroeder sexually violent and commit him for treatment.

Schroeder was released from prison, but has been detained at a State Department of Health Services facility since his 2010 release.

Schroeder's detention hearing began Monday.

Thursday, both sides asked La Crosse County Judge Dale Pasell for more time to review the testimony before reaching a decision.

Pasell set a hearing on the matter for the end of June.
