Three years in prison on forgery charge

Tim Swinea

UNDATED (WSAU-Wheeler News)  A convicted bigamist from Wausau will spend another three years behind bars -- this time for stealing thousands of dollars from an ex-girlfriend's business. 46-year-old Tim Swinea was sentenced in Calumet County for forgery. He'll do time in a state prison, and will be under extended supervision for three years after he gets out.

Swinea was convicted of stealing thousands from Penny Schoenke of Menasha in a check-kiting scheme. Last year, he spent four months in the Marathon County Jail for bigamy. That was after a former wife from the Wausau area learned that Swinea was also married at the time to a Missouri woman who had three of his kids. Schoenke said last year that she met Swinea online, and she almost married him.

Authorities said he skipped out on a couple of previous court appearances, including yesterday's sentencing which was supposed to happen in late January.
