William M. Mason, 41, of Trevor, WI has been identified as being the man who led police on a chase last Thursday, December 22, 2022. According to scanner traffic, Deputies were chasing a Ford Taurus station wagon with a man that was wanted for felony bail-jumping. The car was going in circles and finally came to a stop and crashed off of the side of the road on s/b Highway 45 just north of Highway K. Sheriff’s Deputies and Detectives were on the scene as well as State Patrol accident investigators. The man shot himself dead in the head with a firearm.

Mason was out on bond for very serious allegations. If convicted, he would have likely spent the rest of his life in prison. That may have had played a role in Mason’s suicide. On October 3, 2022, Mason was charged with sexual assaults of a child, child enticement, use of a computer to facilitate a child sex crime, and exposing a child to harmful descriptions. He faced 108.5 years in the Wisconsin Prison System if convicted. He was released on a $30,000 bail. According to the criminal complaint, Mason was having sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl. Investigators examined messages between Mason and the 15-year-old in which the two planned to have a baby when she turned 16 or 17. They had named their future child “Tiffany.” Of coarse, the 15-year-old girl is a child and cannot legally consent to sexual contact. According to a Kenosha County Detective, they had sexual intercourse orally, at least five times.

A couple of months later, the Kenosha DA’s office charged Mason with distributing THC to a minor. Detectives learned that Mason allegedly gave his sex victim THC cartridges. He was released on another $2,500 cash bail.

The Sheriff’s Department learned that on November 30, 2022, Mason said to a friend, “I got nothing to lose. I figured when my end date is alright, my end date is coming soon. There ain’t no more handcuffs.” This statement was recorded and sent to the sex victim’s father. It was thought that Mason was going to kill the girl’s father or flee. For theses comments, prosecutors received a warrant for Mason’s arrest. It was approved and Mason became a wanted man.

The deputies that caught up with Mason on December 22, 2022, may have saved a life… or two.

That’s exactly what David Wilk tried to do in an oral/written ruling from this past Monday. Let’s start with Judge Wilk’s beginning. Wilk attended Hamline

  1. It’s a shame his last act destroyed a car, even a Ford Taurus deserves better. Other than that, I appreciate him finally making a smart decision.

  2. Absolutely wonderful that he took himself out! Couldn’t make me happier for a pedophile to take themselves out??????

  3. Yes, he is a loser in today’s society.

    Let’s not forget that for pretty much all of history until 80 years ago in the North of the USA (and much less in the South) men in their 20s, 30s, and 40s married 14, 15, and 16 year old girls for life and raised fine families. Of course 15 year old girls are partnering with men and rasiing fine families all over the world today. By today’s standards you all have a pervert great, great grandfather and so on.

    Yes this guy looks like a mutt and probably would have left her in a few years.

    We all enjoy judging and misusing the word pedophile. A pedophile is attracted to sexually immature humans (girls not capable of reproduction, boys whose testicles have not descended).

    Save the pedo damnation for actual pedos. The Bible already told you what to do with them; it involves a milstone and a river…

  4. The “THC cartridges” were supplied by Danny Young he calls himself “Reckless” or something ridiculous like that maybe “Ruthless”
