Last Friday, May 12, 2023, just before 11:00 am, police believe an 18-year-old man was handling a gun and shot his three-year-old sister. KCE can identify this man as Christian J. Koleske. Kolesk is being held at the Kenosha County Jail on a probation hold while Kenosha Police Detectives investigate the incident further.
Koleske’s sister suffered a severe gunshot wound to her lower extremity and had to be flown to Milwaukee via flight for life. She is expected to survive.
KCE expects that Koleske will be charged with one or more severe felonies soon.
Unfortunately for the little girl, Koleske seems to have been the beneficiary of the weak-on-crime stance of the progressive Kenosha DA’s office.
At only 18 years old, Koleske has already caught two felony files, and three misdemeanor files. He received sweetheart plea deals in all five cases.
On September 6, 2021, police and prosecutors say that Koleske harmed an 11-year-old child that lived with him. While being arrested, he resisted and kicked at the police windows from inside the squad car. He threatened to spit on officers and used vulgarities with them. He was charged with felony child abuse – intentionally causing bodily harm and resisting arrest. The felony was pleaded down to a misdemeanor and he got a fine and two days of time served.
On September 25, 2021, police and prosecutors say that Koleski pushed down his baby sister in a rage. This is the same baby sister that he allegedly shot last week. He told his guardian that she was a “bitch,” “hoe,” and “miserable motherfucker.” He also told her “I hope you die so I can cremate your ass.” When arrested, he again threatened to spit on officers and kicked the squad car. Graveley’s office apparently didn’t seem to think the battery against his baby sister was serious. They dismissed the felony and another misdemeanor. He plead guilty only to only disorderly conduct. He got 47 days in jail, time served.
On February 3, 2022, police and prosecutors say that Koleske threw a board with nails sticking out of them at his guardian almost hitting her and the small children. He plead guilty to domestic abuse and served two days in jail.
On April 7, 2022, police and prosecutors say that Koleske was involved in a verbal domestic dispute with his girlfriend. When police arrived, he resisted arrest and fought with police. He also used vulgarities. He was charged with obstructing, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, and bail jumping. Everything was dismissed, except resisting. He was given 18 months of probation.
On May 24, 2022, police and prosecutors say that Koleske violated his bond by having contact with his girlfriend. This charge was dismissed.
KCE will report further on this breaking story.
