Dennis Linn

A former Twin Lakes police captain was sentenced by a Kenosha County judge on Friday, Jan. 13 to two years probation. 

Dennis Linn pleaded guilty to one count of possession of narcotic drugs in November 2022. Three other charges against Linn were dismissed and read into the court record for the purposes of sentencing.

Charges were filed against Linn and his wife, Cheryl Linn, in March 2019 after an investigation was launched into prescription medication removed from the Twin Lakes Police Department.
