All charges filed against Shawano County Sheriff Adam Bieber by former Shawano County Sheriff Detective Wade Wudtke were dropped on Tuesday before day two of testimony was heard in court. We will have more details as they become available.
Shawano County Sheriff Adam Bieber made the following statement after the trial ended.
“Many of you know that when you voted me into Office and I started my term as Sheriff in January of 2015 that it was not going to be easy for me or my family. Challenges will still arise but today a huge weight has been lifted as a former detective has dropped his Federal Lawsuit against me. Yesterday was the first day of trial and needless to say it went very good for me. This morning they asked to settle the case…we refused knowing the facts of the case…about an hour later they dropped their case completely. It has been difficult for Amy and I, but we appreciate your support and prayers through this storm. As before I wish nothing but success and God’s blessing for the former detective and his family. I appreciate the support of our County Board, friends and family. I will continue to learn and do the best I can for the Citizens of Shawano County while leading the good men/women of the Shawano Sheriff’s Office.” -Sheriff Adam C. Bieber
