SHEBOYGAN, Wis. (WHBL) - Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe DeCecco again lashed at a plan to permanently layoff prosecutors statewide.

Having already said his office would decline to prosecute as many as 1,200 misdemeanors a year if Sheboygan County loses an Assistant District Attorney, DeCecco questioned the legislature’s thinking Thursday. Saying the 2010-2011 state budget provides millions of dollars in funding for such things as private opera houses, barns and nature centers, DeCecco wonders why District Attorney’s throughout the state cannot be provided with adequate funding.

DeCecco has said his office is already short five full-time prosecutors and the loss of another would be catastrophic.
