Superintendent gets taxpayer-funded lawyer

•  National News     updated  2011/02/08 09:42


The Wisconsin superintendent who received $140,000 a year in salary and benefits has been declared indigent and will get a taxpayer-funded attorney to defend him against charges of trying to solicit sex from a minor.

At a hearing in Milwaukee County Circuit Court Monday, New Holstein superintendent Christopher Nelson was appointed a lawyer who will be paid $60 an hour by Milwaukee County. A lien will be placed on Nelson's retirement benefits.

The 58-year-old Nelson was arrested Jan. 19 while attending a school board convention in Milwaukee. Prosecutors say he tried to arrange a sexual encounter with a 15-year-old boy who was actually an undercover investigator. The Sheboygan Press says the two had been chatting online since June.
