SENTENCED: One of two men charged in brawl around bonfire that left man badly burned
KENOSHA COUNTY (WITI) -- One of two people charged in connection with a brawl around a bonfire that left a man badly burned has been sentenced.
20-year-old Logan Kramer initially faced a felony count of aggravated battery intentionally causing great bodily harm, a felony count of first degree reckless injury and a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.
He pleaded guilty to the aggravated battery charge, and the others were dismissed.
In court on Monday, November 17th, Kramer was placed on probation for six years. He'll receive credit for 31 days served if that probation is revoked.
The other individual charged in the case, 23-year-old Matthew Arnold of Burlington is set to stand trial. He's facing the same three charges as Kramer.
Arnold has a final pre-trial hearing scheduled for December 9th.
Witnesses say Caleb Menges fell into a bonfire as two men continued to beat him.
It happened in the Town of Wheatland near the Fox River last summer.
A criminal complaint says Menges confronted Kramer about being disrespectful to his ex-girlfriend. Punches were thrown, and Menges fell onto his left side, and ended up with his back in the fire.
A friend was eventually able to pull Menges from the fire, and ripped his burning shirt off him. He was taken to the hospital with second and third-degree burns.
