A Clintonville woman makes her initial appearance in Waupaca County Circuit Court today after allegedly beating up an elderly man last week. 30 year-old Amber L. Barry is charged with aggravated battery against an elderly person, and felony bail jumping, along with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.
The criminal complaint alleges Barry punched a 71 year-old man in the head multiple times while demanding money, in a Weyauwega apartment. The complaint says the victim was attached to an oxygen tank at the time and could not defend himself. The bail jumping charge stems from bond conditions on a burglary charge from last December.
If convicted, Barry could face up to 12 years behind bars.
