Kronenwetter trustee arrested on outstanding warrant
Sources confirmed to The Wausonian that Sean Dumais faces an outstanding warrant for non-payment of child support
The Wausonian has confirmed that Kronenwetter Village Trustee Sean Dumais was arrested Sunday in connection with an outstanding warrant from another county. 1
According to a booking screen forwarded to The Wausonian, Dumais was booked into Marathon County Jail Sunday on an outstanding warrant from Washington County.
Kronenwetter doesn’t keep photos of trustees on its website nor does it list addresses. The Wausonian reached out to several Kronenwetter contacts to confirm that the arrested Dumais was the same who serves as a village trustee. Several official and unofficial sources verified that it was trustee in question.
Because the arrest was for a warrant in another county, no initial appearance was scheduled in Marathon County Court. His name does appear in the jail logs sent out every day to media, and Monday’s listed him being arrested on 4/23/23 and having been in jail one day.
Marathon County officials confirmed that the warrant was from Washington County, and that Everest Metro made the arrest.
Kronenwetter Police Chief Terry McHugh also confirmed Dumais’s identity to The Wausonian and said the warrant was related to child support. Everest Metro Chief Clayton Schulz confirmed that the warrant was for failing to pay child support.
As of this post being published, no charges have been officially filed against Dumais, according to court records. No record of any kind appears from Washington County.

The Wausonian typically doesn’t publish breaking news, as this publication is dedicated to deep dives instead. But the arrest of a public official is a little too big not to put out there right away. Speaking of, The Wausonian has finally obtained the police report from City Council Member Sarah Watson’s OWI arrest in Wausau. I’m debating what to do with it since it is now somewhat old news the Pilot already reported - but the details were pretty shocking.
