Outrage over Plea Deal in Former Deputy’s Child Sex Assault Case

By Shelley Walcott

JEFFERSON – A former Waukesha county sheriff’s deputy accepted a plea deal Thursday on charges that he sexually assaulted two children.

Terrence Greenwald, 57, had been facing dozens of years in prison if he had been convicted of six felony sex crimes.

But under the plea agreement, all the charges were reduced to misdemeanors.

Greenwald’s attorney is expected to ask for a county jail sentence and probation.

The victims’ relatives are outraged by the deal.  The children Greenwald is accused of sexually assaulting are relatives of his – a boy and a girl.

The children’s grandfather could barely contain himself in court. “And him being a retired deputy, at the Waukesha County Sheriff’s department, it’s outrageous. That guy should be taken out in the back and just pounded to a pulp,” the grandfather said.

Greenwald pleaded “no contest” to four counts of sexual assault and two counts of exposing his genitals to a child.

The deal allows the retired deputy to avoid a trial.

“It’s a fabulous offer,” Greenwald’s attorney, Jennifer Dorow, explained. “It avoids felony convictions, it avoids prison.”

According to the criminal complaint, the abuse started when the children were 6 and 8 and continued over a period of nearly 11 years.

The kids finally told their mother last year. She too is outraged by the deal. “It takes considerable restraint, and only because of my job and my kids and the fact that I don’t want to go to jail, I haven’t done anything,” she said.

Other family members agree that Greenwald is getting off easy.

“He’s supposed to uphold the law and here he’s molesting kids,” the kids’ grandfather said.

Thursday’s hearing was held in Jefferson County, to avoid any conflict of interest in the Waukesha County Courthouse.

Sentencing in the case will take place next month, at the Waukesha County Courthouse.

GA deputy pig Milton Scott Pruitt Likes kiddie porn.

A federal judge could decide this week whether a former Forsyth County Sheriff’s deputy convicted of child pornography charges will get a new trial.

A jury found Milton Scott Pruitt guilty in July of one count each of knowingly receiving child pornography on his work and home computers.

His sentencing was delayed in October after allegations surfaced that evidence may have been withheld from the defense.

Pruitt’s attorney, Ann Fitz, filed a motion for a new trial just before his sentencing was scheduled.

A hearing on the motion has been set for Wednesday morning in Gainesville.

Internal Investigation: Greece NY Pig Sty “Riveted With Corruption”

Greece, N.Y. — When former State Police Investigator Joseph Loszynski was brought in to investigate possible wrongdoing in the Greece Police Department last spring, he had no idea of how bad things really were.

The Public Safety Director said he was initially focusing on three things: a shredding incident at police headquarters, an accident involving former Officer Nick Joseph, and complaints against former Officer Gary Pignato.  But Loszynski said within a short time the investigation “spiraled” into 36 separate internal probes.
