A disorderly conduct charge against Mayor Tim Kabat’s wife Christy is not scheduled for trial yet, and probably won’t go to trial until next year.
Mrs. Kabat was charged after getting into an argument with a driver during an anti-racism demonstration in downtown La Crosse in May.
The van driver says he sprayed Mrs. Kabat with pepper-spray after she scratched him.
Mrs. Kabat entered a ‘not guilty’ plea during a July hearing.
Since then, the case has been assigned to a Monroe County judge, and the Vernon County district attorney is prosecuting, to avoid conflict of interest.
Mrs. Kabat also has a new defense attorney, who has asked for more time to look into the case.
The next hearing is set for December 30th.
