- Felony Criminal Damage to Property, Repeater

In today’s hearing, a Brown County judge expressed his frustration at how the court continued to be delayed because of an issue of compensation for the medical expert.
“It’s not fair really to the defendant, and the victims to have this issue be out there. To the extent, it’s the court’s mistake. I apologize for that but I am irritated by that,” said the Brown County Judge.
Brice’s trial is set to start in October and he is being held on a $2M bond.
