Beaver Dam man charged after not returning to jail after work

January 25, 2019

JUNEAU — A 32-year-old Beaver Dam man could face six years of incarceration after failing to return to jail earlier in the month while on Huber restrictions.

Paul Digangi Jr. is charged with felony escape. He failed to return to Dodge County Jail on Jan. 15 and has a warrant out for his arrest.

According to the criminal complaint, Digangi left with another Huber inmate to go to Kaul Exteriors, 312 Milwaukee St., Neosho, on Jan. 15 and was scheduled to return that evening, but never returned to jail. The other inmate told authorities that he had taken Digangi to work but works in a different area than Digangi and had not seen him the rest of the day. Digangi also told the other inmate that he did not need a ride back to the jail, because a ride was coming to get him so he could pick up a prescription.

Digangi’s supervisor was contacted and said that Digangi was fired the previous day and was not there at all Jan. 15.

Digangi has been an inmate at Dodge County Jail since June 7 and had been going to work since Oct. 20. He has 137 days left to serve on his sentence after being convicted of intimidating a witness.
