[WI] Officer's almost-murdered wife Chao Lee seems caught between 2 hells

Because of time already served Chueng Lee holds up two fingers to family and friends to show about how long it will be until he is able to be released and rejoin them.

...At today’s sentencing hearing, she asked Shawano County Judge Thomas Grover to free her husband... “I don’t know why I just didn’t die that day,” Chao Lee said...

From earlier entries:

"'PLEASE DON'T LET HIM GET AWAY WITH THIS. HE IS TRYING TO KILL ME'"... SHE FEARED [WAUSAU POLICE OFFICER] CHUENG LEE AS HE DROVE AT HIGH SPEEDS DOWN THE RURAL ROAD... HE TOUCHED HER IN A SEXUAL MANNER BEFORE THE CRASH. "I THOUGHT, WHERE DID MY HUSBAND OF 20 YEARS GO?... I FEEL THIS PERSON IS A RAPIST. I STARTED TO CRY BECAUSE IT HURT. THEN I SAW THE BRIDGE, AND I STARTED TO PRAY"... CHUENG LEE, 46, ENTERED NO CONTEST PLEAS TO TWO FELONY CHARGES: RECKLESSLY CAUSING GREAT BODILY HARM TO ANOTHER HUMAN AND RECKLESS DRIVING CAUSING GREAT BODILY HARM... HE WOULD HAVE FACED A PRISON SENTENCE OF UP TO 80 YEARS IF CONVICTED OF FIRST-DEGREE ATTEMPTED HOMICIDE, BATTERY AND SECOND-DEGREE SEXUAL ASSAULT CHARGES... FIVE FELONY CHARGES FILED IN OCTOBER IN MARATHON COUNTY AGAINST CHUENG LEE WILL BE DISMISSED...

SHAWANO -- A former Wausau police officer who investigators say tried to kill his wife in September by crashing his truck into a rural Shawano County bridge will spend three years in prison followed by two years of extended supervision. Chueng Lee, 46, was sentenced late this afternoon.

Chueng Lee, 46, of Weston, entered no-contest pleas on May 20 to felony charges of recklessly causing great bodily harm to another human and reckless driving causing great bodily harm after reaching a plea deal with prosecutors. The deal came following the first day of testimony at his trial.

Lee’s wife, Chao Lee, told police at the scene that he tried to kill her. At today’s sentencing hearing, she asked Shawano County Judge Thomas Grover to free her husband so that he can work and support her financially. Without him, her children will put her in a nursing home, she said.

“I don’t know why I just didn’t die that day,” Chao Lee said.

After serving his prison time, Chueng Lee will also be on extended supervision for two years. Lee would have faced a prison sentence of up to 80 years if convicted of the original charges of first-degree attempted homicide, battery and second-degree sexual assault.

The felony conviction prevents Chueng Lee from being a police officer again. [Source]

I pray someone gives Chao a job and empowers her to have more choices.
Please help her!!!
