Horton Man Enters Into Plea Agreement In Three Cases

A rural Horton man charged with ten counts in three separate cases has entered into a plea agreement.
In first case, 22-year-old Ryan Shopteese pleaded no contest in Brown County District Court Monday to charges of felony theft, fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer and misdemeanor criminal damage to property.
