September trial date set for Readstown police chief
VIROQUA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - A September trial date is scheduled for the Readstown police chief charged with sexual assault and misconduct in office.
According to court records, Shay Larson is going to trial on three felony misconduct charges. The remaining counts, including disorderly conduct and 4th degree sexual assault, are all charged as misdemeanors.
The records show jury selection is set for September 25th, with the trial in Vernon County starting later that day and going into the 26th.
Prosecutors say the 30-year-old used his position as chief in Readstown to leverage sexual favors while he was on duty and lied to investigators.
Judge Michael Rosborough granted a motion by Larson's attorney to sever the three felony counts from the six misdemeanor charges.
