UPDATE: The Winneshiek County Sheriff’s Office has filed charges on five South Winneshiek students in connection with another student’s assault on two occasions.
The Sheriff’s Office has been investigating two separate incidents involving South Winneshiek High School Students last month. One of the incidents occurred at South Winneshiek High School and the other occurred in rural Winneshiek County near Fort Atkinson. Both incidents involved assaults that occurred on a South Winneshiek student.
Braxton Smith, 19, was charged in adult court with aggravated assault with intent to commit sexual assault, and four additional juveniles were referred to juvenile court.
The Winneshiek County Attorney’s Office turned over the prosecution of this case to the Allamakee County Attorney’s Office due to a conflict of interest.
