× Attorney: US deports woman who alleged sex assault by guards

OSHKOSH — A woman whose claim of sexual assault prompted the criminal investigation of Wisconsin’s Department of Health Services says her attorney called the attorney for the state to say she was deported.

MSNBC reports that the woman’s attorney, Kizar Green, says Oconomowoc Human Services director Kevin Connell called the attorney to tell her that her case was being referred to the federal government. Green later sent a letter to Connell, which she later released to media, saying her client was never deported.

Connell’s attorney, Dan Michalski, told Milwaukee-based WCPO that his client had been separated from the man who hired him, being given a form to fill out and receiving a letter containing a deportation notice. Michalski says his client was told to take a different job in China.

Connell and Green met as juveniles in the 1980s. They fought together before the 31-year-old Green and a 27-year-old man, who were juveniles at the time, were sent to care facilities for foster care in the early 1990s.
