FOND DU LAC, WI (WTAQ) - A judge in Fond du Lac ordered a $100,000 cash bond Thursday for a man accused of letting a pit bull attack an 18-year-old, as punishment for stealing the man’s gold coins.
58-year-old Richard Lisko of Campbellsport was charged Thursday morning, along with the victim’s 43-year-old father – who’s accused of watching and helping with the attacks.
The judge ordered a $50,000 bond for the father, Joel Kennedy of New Berlin.
He and Lisko are both scheduled to return to court a week from Friday, when a judge will decide if there’s enough evidence to order a trial.
According to prosecutors, Lisko thought the 18-year-old stole his gold coins last week – so he allegedly had his pit bull attack the teen 3 times, once while the youngster was hanging upside down.
Officials said Kennedy looked on and helped with the last two attacks. They occurred last Friday in the Fond du Lac County town of Osceola.
The teen suffered numerous dog bites throughout his body.
Lisko and Kennedy are both charged with false imprisonment, substantial battery, causing injury by negligence, and obstructing police.
Kennedy is also charged with failing to aid a crime victim, and Lisko is charged with bail jumping in connection with an unrelated earlier pit bull attack on a woman.
