APPLETON, WI (WTAQ) - A lawyer in the Fox Valley is on the other side of the law, after being charged with allegedly beating and raping his wife.
49-year-old David Dudas is facing 31 charges, including first and second-degree sexual assault, strangulation and suffocation, and substantial battery.
Dudas appeared in Outagamie County Court Wednesday. He is currently out on $750,000 cash bond, after the court denied Dudas' request for a lower bond.
