BURNETT COUNTY -- The Court has denied a motion for modification of bond for Charles Mitchell, one of two Shell Lake, WI residents recently arrested and charged in Burnett County Circuit Court following an investigation into heroin distribution.

Charles Mitchell and Lisa Haler were arrested on June 15, 2022, following a traffic stop on their vehicle. A press release from the Burnett County Sheriff’s Office states that 23 grams of heroin were located in their vehicle along with numerous items of drug paraphernalia. 

Mitchell is charged with Class D Felony Possess with Intent-Heroin(>10-50g), PTAC, as a Party to a Crime; two counts of Class H Felony Bail Jumping; and Misdemeanor Possess Drug Paraphernalia.

Haler is charged with Class D Felony Possess with Intent-Heroin(>10-50g), PTAC, as a Party to a Crime; four counts of Class H Felony Bail Jumping; and Misdemeanor Possess Drug Paraphernalia.

Online circuit court records show that both Mitchell and Haler appeared in Burnett County Circuit Court on June 16, 2022, for bail bond hearings, and the Hon. Melissia Mogen ordered a cash bond for each of them in the amount of $50,000.

Mitchell appeared most recently on July 18, 2022, and his defense counsel proposed a motion to modify his bond to allow him to attend programming. Burnett County Assistant District Attorney Schmidt opposed the motion. Judge Mogen denied the motion and scheduled Mitchell to appear again in October 2022.

In three additional Burnett County circuit court cases Mitchell is also charged with three counts of Class I Felony Possession of Narcotic Drugs; Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine; two counts of Class H Felony Bail Jumping; three counts of Misdemeanor Possess Drug Paraphernalia; and Misdemeanor Issue of Worthless Checks(<=$2500).

Additional criminal charges filed against Haler in three other Burnett County circuit court cases include two counts of Class I Felony Possession of Narcotic Drugs; two counts of Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine; five counts of Class H Felony Bail Jumping; three counts of Misdemeanor Possess Drug Paraphernalia; and Misdemeanor Issue of Worthless Checks(<=$2500).

Haler appeared most recently on July 13 and she is set to appear again on July 20, 2022.

Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
