Chase Harville appears in court via a television screen. Harville is in the upper right.

Crawford County Circuit Court Judge Lynn Rider reads the charges.

A 29-year-old Prairie du Chien man charged with homicide had his initial appearance in Crawford County Circuit Court Wednesday, July 22 beginning at 3 p.m.

Chase M. Harville appeared via a television screen from his Crawford County Jail cell as Judge Lynn Rider read the four counts against him and the penalties if he is convicted of all counts.

There were 10 people in the audience in the courtroom. Others could see the hearing via Zoom.

Harville said he understood the charges against him and the penalties associated with each count.

Rider asked Harville if he had an attorney and Harville said he did, but he didn’t know where his attorney was.

Because Harville’s attorney wasn’t present, Rider said that there will be an adjourned initial appearance to be held on Monday, July 27 at 2 p.m.

Harville has been charged with one count of first degree reckless homicide, repeater; misdemeanor battery, domestic abuse; possession of a firearm by a felon; and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Details of all charges can be found in an article with the headline “Harville charged with first degree reckless homicide” that appeared in the July 22 edition of The Courier Press and on the website www.pdccourier.com for July 22.

In addition, Rider explained that there could be a bifurcated sentence regarding the charge of possession of a firearm by a felon if Harville is convicted. A bifurcated sentence means that a penalty enhancer of not less than three years could be added if certain conditions are met.
