Chippewa County Circuit Judge James Isaacson has denied a new trial request from the man who ran down a group of girl scouts in November of 2018. Colten Treu is serving 54 years for being high when he caused the crash that left three scouts and an adult dead. He told the court he wouldn’t have pleaded guilty if he knew he was giving up his ability to appeal. Members of Treu’s original defense team took the stand Wednesday and were asked about the way they informed him of his rights to appeal. The prosecution argued there was no evidence of wrongdoing by Treu’s attorneys at the time and the judge agreed.
