Scott Jensen felony free after 8 years

Wow. I hadn’t heard anything bubbling up on this one. Scott Jensen, a former state assembly speaker and Town of Brookfield resident, has settled a deal with the Waukesha District Attorney.

The MJS has details.

Former Republican Assembly speaker Scott Jensen resolved the criminal case against him involving misconduct in office charges by agreeing to pay a $5,000 civil forfeiture on Monday and reimbursing the state $67,174 in legal fees initially borne by taxpayers, according to a plea deal that was reached.

Under the agreement accepted by Waukesha County Circuit Judge Patrick L. Snyder, felony misconduct in office charges against Jensen were dismissed.
