A Cumberland, WI woman has been sentenced on her charges stemming from a stabbing incident that occurred in June 2017.

A press release was issued by the Barron County Sheriff’s Department on June 8, 2017, which stated that the Barron County Sheriff’s Department Dispatch had received a call about a stabbing between two females on the Maple Plain Reservation near Cumberland.


A 19-year old woman had sustained a stab wound to her side as well as cuts on her hands in the altercation with Micah Homesky, 18 years old at the time. Homesky initially fled the scene of the incident but was located later.

Homesky was charged with Class H Felony Aggravated Battery. Her case was scheduled for a Jury Trial in October 2017, however, online circuit court records show that Homesky instead entered a guilty plea to her charge.

A sentencing hearing was recently held in Barron County Circuit Court for Homesky and the Court ordered an Imposed and Stayed sentence of 6 years: 3 years initial confinement followed by 3 years of extended supervision. The Court imposed a sentence of 3 years probation for Homesky with 9 months of conditional jail time.

The Court also ordered that Homesky is to pay over $30,000 in restitution.

Homesky will be eligible for work release for treatment, work, and homemaker privileges during her conditional jail time. Conditions of her probation will require her to complete any and all evaluations, counseling and follow through as recommended by her probation agent.
