Wisconsin man gone missing from fraud sentencings arrested in Illinois

by

HENRY COUNTY, IL (WTAQ) - A former west central Wisconsin man has been arrested in Illinois, almost a year-and-a-half after he missed two sentencing hearings for defrauding businesses.

61-year-old Malen Juzwiak, formerly of Withee, was arrested in Henry County in northwest Illinois. He faces extradition to Wisconsin to be sentenced in Clark and Chippewa counties for theft, writing bad checks, and theft by fraud.

Prosecutors said Juzwiak was paid $20,000 by a dealer to provide a large piece of farm equipment – but he sold the item directly to its intended buyer and never gave the dealer the money.

Authorities said he also bought a farm track loader with a bounced check, and later sold it to a dealer in Boyd for $25,000.

In Clark County, Joswiak was convicted on reduced charges of over $10,000 of theft by fraud, and writing more than $5,000 in bad checks. He also has a case pending in Marathon County, in which he has pleaded innocent to theft by fraud of over $10,000.
