2-26-15 fdl man convicted in police shoot out

A Fond du lac man involved in a shootout with police a little more than a year ago has been convicted.  At a hearing Wednesday afternoon in Fond du lac County Circuit Court Shannon Rogler entered no contest pleas to multiple counts including recklessly  endangering safety with a  dangerous weapon.  Rogler was initially charged with attempted homicide.  That charge was dismissed and read into the record.  District attorney Eric Toney says all of the counts carry a maximum prison sentence of nearly 60 years in prison.  A pre-sentence investigation was ordered and bail was revoked.  Police say Rogler set fire to a vacant house on North Hickory Street and then was involved in a standoff with Fond du Lac police at his apartment in the Elms Mobile Home park on South Main Street on December 9th 2013. He surrendered to police after about five hours.  Nobody was injured.  Rogler fired multiple shots at officers on the scene, but according to the criminal complaint Rogler said he was not trying to kill the officers.
