Woman Sentenced in Relation to an Attack from 2016 at Ho-Chunk Casino

A woman from Wauwatosa was found guilty over charges for felony and aggravated battery concerning an attack on a man that occurred at Ho-Chunk casino back in 2016. The 30-year-old Chia Chang entered a no-contest plea to the described charges. Initially, the charges included robbery as well, but the charge was dropped after an agreement of the Attorney’s Office at Sauk County District and Ms. Chang. 

Ms. Chang was sentenced to three years of probation by Sauk County Circuit Court Judge Wendy J. N. Klicko. As a part of the sentence, the lady must pay $200 restitution and she is also prohibited to contact the man which she attacked and injured.

The man had injuries to his arm and left eye. Upon questioning, the male revealed that while he was sitting at a blackjack table at Ho-Chunk casino near Baraboo and Wisconsin Dells he was approached by a woman in her 20s.
