WISCONSIN RAPIDS, Wis. (WSAU) -- A convicted sex offender is going back to prison for violating the terms of his extended supervision... but not for a sex crime.
Andrew Guenther is going back to prison for two more years for abusing an elderly man. Judge Nicholas Brazeau found Guenther guilty of subjecting an at-risk person to abuse and two counts of intimidating a witness.
The abuse stems from a 2008 incident where Guenther punched the older man in the leg and hit his foot with a baseball bat. The victim’s wife saw Guenther do it, and the couple’s pastor reported the crime. The complaint also says Guenther threatened to cut their throats while they slept if they called authorities.
Guenther also got in trouble for lying to his case managers and not informing them about his new live-in girlfriend.
