Tomah man, recently sentenced in La Crosse fatal shooting, now faces drug charges with second suspect



Less than two weeks ago, a 19-year-old Tomah man received a prison sentence in La Crosse for his role in the shooting death of another teenager.


Sage Hicke was back in a La Crosse court Tuesday, facing drug charges along with a second suspect.

Police say both Hicke and 18-year-old Thomas Dewitt apparently conspired to bring LSD into the La Crosse jail. Criminal complaints are being prepared. Both suspects are scheduled to be back in court Wednesday.

On Dec. 15, Hicke was sentenced to a two-year prison term, for a plea agreement resulting from the 2022 shooting of 15-year-old Storm Vondrashek at a La Crosse apartment building.

A murder charge was dismissed in the case, and Hicke was sentenced to intimidating a witness and firearm possession.

Dewitt was released from jail, while Hicke remains behind bars, while he waits to be transferred to prison.

Prosecutor Andrew Burdick argued for a high signature bond for Hicke. The judge set it at $1,000.
