La Crosse, Wis. - (WXOW) - A motion hearing was held Friday for a man charged with attempted homicide of a La Crosse police officer.
The attorney for Allen Kruk sought to have his $50,000 cash bail changed to a signature bond.
A La Crosse judge said no to that request.
Prosecutors said 34-year-old Allen Kruk shot La Crosse Police Officer Dustin Darling back in August when the officer was responding to a domestic dispute.
Kruk pleaded not guilty in December to the charge of attempted 1st Degree Intentional Homicide.
Darling was protected by his bulletproof vest and Kruk was wounded as Darling returned fire. The state argued before Judge Ramona Gonzalez that Kruk's previous disregard of court orders in addition to the severity of current charges should keep the high cash bond in place.
Kruk's attorney Daniel Linehan sought a signature bond for Kruk, adding that the bond should come with "stringent conditions".
In her ruling, Judge Gonzalez noted, "With Kruk's failure to comply with earlier signature bonds, the court is satisfied with the current cash bond. The request is denied."
