A Stevens Point attorney convicted of repeatedly sexually assaulting his wife in 2012 and 2013 was sentenced Wednesday to 30 years in prison.
David Dudas, 49, was convicted in April of 30 felony and misdemeanor charges, including multiple counts of sexual assault, strangulation and suffocation, and battery. The charges stem from Dudas forcing his wife, Jill, to perform sexual acts and choking her during the abuse.
In sentencing Dudas, Brown County Circuit Judge Tammy Jo Hock also ordered extended supervision for 10 years after he is released from prison.
Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider, who prosecuted the case, did not immediately return phone calls Wednesday.
Dudas was with the Green Bay firm McCanna, Dudas & Kewley SC prior to his arrest, according to State Bar records. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin Law School in 1989.
Following his conviction, the state Supreme Court suspended Dudas’ law license. The Office of Lawyer Regulation is now pursuing a revocation, stating in a complaint that his “criminal conduct reflects adversely upon his honesty, trustworthiness or fitness as a lawyer in other respects.”
Court records show Dudas’ wife filed for divorce Sept. 9, a few weeks after his arrest. That case is still pending.
Dudas’ attorney, Stephen Hurley of Hurley, Burish & Stanton SC, Madison, did not immediately return a phone call Wednesday.Follow @eheisigWLJ
