Posted: Today at 5:32 p.m.
FOND DU LAC, Wis. — A man who claimed he was a werewolf when he broke into a woman's apartment has been sentenced to six months in jail. Robert Marsh, 40, faced charge of criminal trespassing, criminal damage to property, disorderly conduct and possession of marijuana.
He pleaded no contest to criminal trespass as part of a plea deal and the other charges were dropped.
He was accused of breaking through the deadbolt of a woman's apartment around 3 a.m. March 1 and grabbed the woman's arm, according to the criminal complaint.
He frightened the woman when he told her he was a werewolf, had powers and was involved in a witch religion, the complaint said. When police arrested Marsh, he told them he was a werewolf who could change forms, the complaint said.
The woman said she had been letting Marsh stay with her since his release from prison several days earlier because he was homeless, the complaint said. While he was there he drank, did not sleep and was often incoherent, according to the criminal complaint.
Fond du Lac County Circuit Court Judge Robert Wirtz sentenced Marsh this week.
