VIROQUA, Wis. – Sheriff Roy Torgerson reports that on July 23, 2023, Jennifer Jo Taube, 43, of Paynesville, MN was arrested following a driving complaint and pursuit that originated in Vernon County, and terminated in Crawford County. Taube appeared in Vernon County Circuit Court on July 24 and was released on a $500 signature bond. One of several conditions of release is that the defendant shall not commit any crimes.

Sheriff Torgerson also reports that on August 29, a court hearing was held and Taube’s initial appearance was rescheduled for October 13, at 3:00 p.m. in Vernon County Circuit Court.

Torgerson goes on to say that Taube was arrested in the city of La Crosse on September 2 for knowingly violating a domestic abuse order, and possession of methamphetamine. On September 5, Taube was transported to the Vernon County Detention Center to face bail jumping charges. Taube appeared in Vernon County Circuit Court on September 6 for a bail hearing. Sheriff Torgerson reports that the District Attorney argued for cash bail in the case but the court ordered a $5,000 signature bond.
