Expected to stay in Dane County

Altoona Superintendent Dan Peggs was granted home release in federal court Monday.

Altoona Police Chief Kelly Bakken says it was mentioned in court that Peggs will be under house arrest in Oregon, Wisconsin, which is in Dane County.

Peggs was not required to pay bond but was allowed to sign papers stating that he agreed with the conditions.

Peggs will not be allowed anywhere on Altoona School property and is not allowed to have any contact with children, including his own. His conditions say he must follow several rules and will be on house arrest.

While in court he said nothing besides “yes sir”.

The court said Peggs had multiple fake social media accounts and will not be allowed to be on a computer or use the internet.

Peggs’ next court appearance has been scheduled for March 30 but that is subject to change.
