A Wisconsin man has filed an appeal to have his guilty pleas reversed. Twenty-four-year-old Colten Treu says his attorneys told him he would still be able to appeal the judge’s denial of a change of venue even if he entered a guilty plea. Treu was convicted in March of last year of killing three Girl Scouts and a mother in a hit-and-run crash. A fourth Girl Scout was injured along a road in Lake Hallie in November of 2018. Treu is serving a 54-year sentence. Chippewa County Judge James Isaacson ruled Treu can’t withdraw his pleas at a hearing last month. The judge says his previous defense team didn’t make a mistake.
