9/16 Kewaskum Man Accused of Car Jacking Seeks Medical Evaluation

A thirty nine year old man from Kewaskum  who is facing three felony charges after he and girlfriend high jacked a truck at knife point during a test drive has now had his case pushed back because his attorney Gary Schmaus wants his client Scott Kudek to be re-examined. According to the criminal complaint,  on January 30th  Kudek and Kayla Goemer went to the Russ Darrow Chrysler dealership in West Bend to test drive. While on the drive, Kudek held a knife to the neck of the salesman who accompanied them and told him they were going to take the truck. After driving several miles, Kudek stopped and let the salesman out. Kudek and Goemer were arrested a few days later at a Florida hotel.  Kudek appeared in court before Washington County CircuitJudge, James Muehlbauer on Thursday afternoon. During a previous hearing in August it was revealed there is no basis for Kudek to enter a not guilty by reason of mental disease or defect plea to the charges he faces after a doctor examined him. His attorney, Gary Schmaus requested to see if the Wisconsin State Public Defender’s Office will approve funding for another exam. Schmaus asked for an adjournment because he found an expert and filled out an application for funding. Judge Muehlbauer granted the request, but wants to see Kudek back in court October ninth at eight fifteen to see if the Wisconsin State Public Defender’s Office will approve funding.
