Sciascia will run for re-election in Dodge County Court
JUNEAU – Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Joseph Sciascia will run for re-election as Judge of the Circuit Court of Dodge County, Branch III, a position he has held since 2013.
In addition to his regular caseload, Sciascia has been the presiding judge of the Dodge County Drug Court since 2018 and also served as the presiding judge of Impaired Driving Court from 2016.
“Substance abuse results in our children being raised in an environment of violence, without proper care and supervision and often times with substandard nutrition, medical care and overall standard of living,” Sciascia said in a press release. “It results in lost productivity in the economy, a lower standard of living for its victims, overall impaired functioning in life and the untimely death of our children, brothers and sisters, nieces, nephews, moms and dads and friends and neighbors. The people of Dodge County have made a substantial commitment to combating substance abuse, and my goal as presiding judge of the Dodge County Drug Court is to make sure that the people of Dodge County receive at least one dollar of service for each dollar spent in supporting this program.”
Sciascia has served on the Dodge County Courthouse Security Committee since its creation in 1995 and has served as its chair since 2016.
Prior to his election Sciascia was an attorney in private practice since 1978 in Juneau and had been the Dodge County Family Court Commissioner for 28 years. He is a past president of the Dodge County Bar Association and is also the past president of the Juneau Community Development Authority. In addition to serving as Juneau City Attorney and the Iron Ridge Village Attorney he also was appointed special prosecutor for Beaver Dam, Waupun, and Horicon as well as Dodge County.
Sciascia is the past president of Immaculate Conception and St. Malachy Catholic Churches (now Sacred Heart Parish). He served as the Dodgeland High School mock trial coach for 20 years and as a youth hockey coach in Beaver Dam. He was a DNR Certified Hunter Safety instructor for 29 years.
