STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WSAU) -- The trial of Ronald Disher ended Friday afternoon with mixed results. Disher is the Almond man accused of being party to the crime of cashing his mother-in-law Marie Jost’s Social Security checks for over thirty years with his wife Dolores and brother-in-law Charles Jost.
The jury found Disher guilty of recklessly endangering safety and disorderly conduct for threatening officers with a metal object when they came to investigate the alleged crime. The jury could not reach agreement on the Social Security fraud issues, and a mistrial was declared on those three charges.
Disher and the attorneys have a scheduling conference at 8:30 a.m. Monday. They are likely to discuss a sentencing date on the two convictions. District Attorney Louis Molepske Jr. indicated Friday that Disher could be retried on the charges, but did not announce at that time if he is pursuing a new trial.
