About a dozen protesters stood in the gentle summer rain outside the Rock County Courthouse Wednesday morning.


They were hoping to call attention to a child abuse case, in which a 28-year-old man, originally charged with felony intentional child abuse, was being offered a plea deal. They say they were seeking justice for the three-year-old victim, who was still recovering from a brain injury.


In the end, Norbert Cruz Cantu pleaded no contest to reduced charges, and received two years probation.
