Stadler sent to prison for seven years

Waukesha – Former Lisbon supervisor James C. Stadler, convicted in 2008 for wielding a gun with his wife and children home, was sentenced this afternoon to seven years in prison for violating conditions of his probation.

Waukesha County Circuit Court Judge Kathleen B. Stilling also ordered Stadler to five years of extended supervision after serving his time in prison.

In February 2008 a jury found Stadler guilty of felony intimidation of a witness and misdemeanor counts of pointing a firearm at another, three counts of possession of a switchblade and disorderly conduct while possessing a dangerous weapon. He was sentenced in May 2008 to five years probation by Judge J. Mac Davis who ordered him not to possess any weapons, have any contact with his then wife, Lynn, or eldest daughter unless they agree in writing to have contact with him.

Stadler ran into trouble with the law when he removed the battery cable and spark plug wires on his second-wife’s car earlier this year to prevent her from leaving the residence and he possessed various weapons, according to court documents.

Stadler’s probation was revoked Aug. 19 following a hearing before Administrative Law Judge.
