A Letter to the Editor in the Nov. 8, 2011, Tomahawk Leader:

‘I broke the law’

On July 1, 2011 I took four “Kim Simac for Senate” signs from the right of way of an Oneida County highway. Let me say this before I continue, I broke the law! that day. In the state of Wisconsin it is illegal to take or tamper with political signs, unless you’re the police, the owner of the sign, or the Highway Department.
Trust me when I say doing something like this is definitely not worth the financial losses (lawyers, fines, lost wages). On top of the embarrassment of being arrested for theft.

In closing this letter I would like to remind you that regardless of a person’s political stance. After the election is over, these people are still you’re neighbors siblings and friends so treat them with respect.
Craig Nelson

(As part of the disposition in a court case, the defendant was ordered to write a letter to be published in the “Letters to the Editor” section of various area newspapers. Michael H. Bloom, District Attorney, Oneida County, Wisconsin)
