Jury Finds Appleton Man Guilty of 2011 Three Lakes Shooting


An Oneida County jury has found a man guilty of four felonies related to the 2011 armed robbery and shooting of a Three Lakes exotic club owner.

30 year old Edwin Hughes of Appleton heard the verdict after a jury deliberated more than three hours. Nearly 6 years ago, Hughes and another man, Daniel Fausto, went to Don DalPonte's home to rob him.

DalPonte was shot in the legs but survived the shooting.

Hughes was found guilty of reckless injury, armed robbery, burglary while armed and being in a stolen car.

DalPonte owned Weasel's club. The building burned down December 31, 2011.

Hughes will be sentenced in April and faces up to 75 years in prison. Hughes also is facing felony charges in Fond du Lac, Dane, Calumet and Outagamie counties.
