The women will get to avoid jail time of 30-60 days as long as they don't violate the terms of their probation, Madison's WKOW-TV reported. They also are to perform community service.
Authorities said Donessa Davis's wife, two lovers and an acquaintance of theirs had plotted their revenge last summer, luring him to a Stockbridge motel July 30 where they tied him up, blindfolded and assaulted him. The women told the court they didn't plan the gluing tactic; that part just evolved as the episode played out.
The Appleton Post-Crescent reported Therese Ziemann, 48, of Menasha; Michelle Belliveau, 43, of Neenah; Wendy Sewell, 44, of Kaukauna; and Tracy Hood-Davis, 31, of Fond du Lac, who is Davis's wife, appeared separately in Calumet County Court and were found guilty of disorderly conduct. Ziemann was convicted of battery as well.
Belleveau was the only one of the four who did not have a sexual relationship with Davis.
"I just wish that this never happened," the Post-Crescent quoted Ziemann as telling Judge Donald Poppy. "It's taken a toll on everybody involved."
Davis didn't speak during any of the four hearings, the newspaper said.
Poppy noted most couples seek out divorce attorneys when marital problems become too great. "They don't set things in motion so people get all messed up with glue," he said.
