SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - A Sheboygan woman who has been in prison for 12 years may soon be getting out. Judge L. Edward Stengel ruled Thursday morning in Sheboygan County Court that 34 year old Renata Neuaone deserves to be re-sentenced. Neuaone is currently serving a 22 year sentence in the Taycheedah women’s prison for attempting to hang a Sheboygan woman from the railroad trestle near the Blue Line Ice Center in Sheboygan in December of 2001 in a dispute over the drug - ecstasy. Stengel said - in an oral ruling - that since the original sentencing, psychologists at Taycheedah have determined that Neuaone was suffering from a personality disorder at the time, caused by domestic abuse. He also said that three others sentenced in the case, including her husband, had gotten substantially lighter sentences. Therefore, Stengel said he was ordering a new sentence, which will be handed down on August 4th.
