“Although this incident has been reviewed at multiple levels, I know that some will not be pleased with the outcome,” Miskinis said according to ABC 7. “However, given the facts, the only lawful and appropriate decision was made.”

The return to duty occurred on March 31. “Officer Sheskey was found to have been acting within policy and will not be subjected to discipline,” Miskinis added.


Kenosha County District Attorney Michael Graveley announced Sheskey would not face charges.
