Circuit Court

A Hayward area resident who was originally charged with homicide by negligent operation of a vehicle in a crash Aug. 18, 2016, pleaded no contest Monday, July 23, in Sawyer County Circuit Court to an amended charge of misdemeanor criminal damage to property after the homicide charge was dropped by Sawyer County District Attorney Bruce Poquette.

Matthew J. Leahy, 26, 15113W Nelson Lake Road, was charged after his vehicle collided head-on with a vehicle driven by 71-year-old Robert C. Bergh of Bloomer on Nelson Lake Road, 537 feet north of Highway 63 Aug. 18, 2016.
