A Stevens Point attorney was convicted Wednesday of repeatedly sexually assaulting his wife in 2012 and 2013.

An Outagamie County jury convicted David Dudas, 49, of 30 felony and misdemeanor charges, including battery, second-degree sexual assault, strangulation and suffocation. According to a complaint, Dudas forced his wife, Jill Dudas, to perform sexual acts, and choked her during the abuse.

The jury found him not guilty of a single count of strangulation and suffocation.

Following the trial and conviction, court records show Dudas’ bond was revoked and he will be held in jail until he is sentenced. That is set for July 17 in front of Brown County Circuit Judge Tammy Jo Hock.

Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday.

Court records show Jill Dudas filed for divorce Sept. 9, a few weeks after his arrest. That case is still pending.

Dudas has no prior criminal convictions, according to court records.

He was with the firm McCanna, Dudas & Kewley SC prior to his arrest, according to State Bar records. A number listed for the firm was disconnected Wednesday.

Dudas’ attorney, Stephen Hurley of Hurley, Burish & Stanton SC, did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday.

Dudas, who graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1989, has no recent attorney disciplinary history.

Office of Lawyer Regulation Director Keith Sellen said he could neither confirm nor deny whether his office was investigating Dudas. He noted, however, that an attorney convicted of a crime must report it to the OLR, as does the clerk of court’s office where the attorney was convicted.
