A former Rice Lake man now being held in a medium-security prison in New Lisbon, Wis., has had his prison term adjusted in connection with convictions for false imprisonment and second-degree reckless endangerment, Barron County Circuit Court records said.
The hearing for 38-year-old Eric M. Schnacky took place Tuesday, June 25, 2019.
Court records said Schnacky had been released from prison in connection with a felony conviction for first-degree reckless injury when he was arrested again on March 29, 2018, after a brief car chase in Rice Lake.
The fleeing car struck a squad car in the Farm & Fleet parking lot before it came to a stop and the driver was arrested.
At the time of the arrest, police were already looking for Schnacky in connection with a domestic quarrel earlier the same day, during which he allegedly physically abused a woman during an argument at their town of Stanley residence.
Four months after the March 2018 arrest, the court revoked probation for Schnacky in connection with a 2007 conviction for stabbing a woman during a domestic quarrel with a then-17-year-old woman in October 2006.
At the June 25, 2019, hearing, Schnacky’s sentence for the 2018 offenses was adjusted to four years in prison and three years extended supervision, consecutive to serving out the rest of the sentence in connection with the 2006 case, court documents said.
