The man Schmaling wants to remove from Racine County’s board of directors is Nick Demkse. The sheriff provided a photo he said shows Demske leaving Jefferson’s bail.
Jefferson is legally entitled to obtain bail from the court. In a statement, however, Schmaling said that the overseer’s actions put “the public in great danger” – and demanded his immediate removal.
FOX6 News asked Demske for a comment, but did not receive an immediate response.
