The Wisconsin legislature heard but refused to act on a bill to deal with animal molesters. What that means is if someone like Sterling Rachwal gets caught sneaking into a barn and molesting someone’s horses, the law can do nothing much about it. If the law would have passed acts like his would have meant prison time for the next offender, and mandatory treatment. Rachwal, 54, was recently convicted in Brown County Circuit Court for molesting horses. It’s a misdemeanor charge, and he got two years’ probation for it, even with a record of similar offenses going back 30 years.
