Bodega beating suspect headed to trial



A trial will be scheduled for the Rochester man accused of attacking an employee at the Bodega in La Crosse. 

Joey Burnham pleads ‘not guilty’ in the Christmas weekend confrontation with a brew pub worker who wanted him to wear a face mask in the bar. 

The December 26th incident was captured on a security camera, and Burnham was the object of a Crime-Stoppers alert. 

Judge Elliott Levine found probable cause to arrange a trial for Burnham.  Levine also indicated he would recuse himself from the case, because he’s a customer of the Bodega and knows the victim.
