The young driver of a car that crashed in the town of Abrams on Dec. 14, killing one teenager and seriously injuring two others, made his first appearance in Oconto County Circuit Court on Monday.

Cade Justin Wied, 18, Sobieski, is charged with second-degree reckless homicide, second-degree reckless injury, two counts of knowingly operating a motor vehicle while his driver’s license was suspended, and misdemeanor resisting or obstructing an officer.

According to the criminal complaint, data recovered from the car indicated Wied was driving down Sampson Road at 88 mph when it went out of control and crashed into two trees around 7:30 p.m. Dec. 14.

September Deneys, 14, Abrams, was killed in the crash. The driver and another passenger, a 17-year-old boy, were treated for serious but non-life-threatening injuries at area hospitals.

During Monday’s court appearance, Judge Jay N. Conley set bond at $25,000 cash and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Feb. 22. Should he make bail, Wied is prohibited from driving or having contact with others impacted by the case. Conley also ordered him to maintain absolute sobriety.

In addition to the criminal charges, Wied was ticketed for operating left of center line causing death, operating left of center line causing great bodily harm, and failure to keep his vehicle under control.

Court records indicate Wied has been ticketed at least eight times in Brown, Oconto and Shawano counties since he was 16 years old, for charges including speeding, disorderly conduct with a motor vehicle, and three previous incidents of operating a motor vehicle while suspended.
