Charges against Nathan L. Leopold in the Oct. 20 fatal crash on Highway 11 are forthcoming pending the results of a toxicology report, said Sue Leistikow, secretary to Green County District Attorney Craig Nolen. Charges cannot be filed until those results are finalized, she said in a phone call last week.

In the meantime, Leopold was scheduled to be in Dane County court on afternoon for a hearing on possible revocation of his probation. The probation was handed down in lieu of a nearly 8-year prison term for a felony bail-jumping conviction on Feb. 24, 2003.
