Jail Administrator resigns

WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) -  The Jail Administrator for Marathon County resigned Wednesday afternoon. Robert J. Dickman submitted his letter of resignation to County Administrator Brad Karger effective at 5:00 p.m. The reason for the resignation has not been made public.

It’s not clear if Dickman’s resignation is related to the recent inmate attack on two corrections officers March 27th. Inmate Frederic Morris assaulted officers Julie Christensen and Denney Woodward during the lunch period, and Christensen remains hospitalized. A special task force was created to examine jail security and make recommendations for the future appointed sheriff.

As of Wednesday evening, neither Dickman or Karger have been available for comment.
