Douglas Co. Sheriff’s Office employee terminated, another on leave

SUPERIOR, WI -- A Douglas County Sheriff's Office employee is out of a job and another is on leave, Sheriff Tom Dalbec confirmed Friday.

Laura Wickersham was terminated from her position as jail sergeant after she was charged with possession of narcotic drugs in late March, according to court records.

Meanwhile, Sergeant Matthew DeRosia is charged with domestic abuse following an incident in January.

He's currently on leave pending an investigation.

DeRosia was recognized in 2019 for locating and arresting the man who kidnapped Jayme Closs.

Wickersham is due back in court later this month.

DeRosia is due in court in May.
