Delayed sentence for Wisconsin man who tried to break into courthouse

A Wisconsin man avoided jail time after attempting to break into the Ontonagon County Courthouse early Saturday morning.

Nicholas Shue, 34, of Elroy, Wisconsin was given a 90 day delay of sentence on a breaking and entering charge on Wednesday in the very courtroom he attempted to break into.

Police say Shue had been drinking, and didn’t really know what he was doing.  They believe Shue was attempting to escape the frigid conditions outside, and didn’t realize where he was trying to find shelter.

No damage was reported.

If Shue does not get arrested in the next three months, the case will be cleared.
