A 67-year-old Oconomowoc woman has been cleared of criminal charges for the second time after leaving her loaded handgun in a Brookfield church last year.
WAUKESHA, Wis. (AP) -- A 67-year-old Oconomowoc woman has been cleared of criminal charges for the second time after leaving her loaded handgun in a Brookfield church last year.

Susan Hitchler forgot the weapon in a woman's restroom while visiting Elmbrook Church last March. A janitor discovered the gun and turned it over to security at the church.

Hitchler was charged with negligently handling a weapon, but the charged was dismissed in June. Prosecutors re-filed a new complaint charging her with disorderly conduct in November.

A judge dismissed the most recent charge Tuesday. He noted that Hitchler had a license to carry a concealed weapon, and said her negligence wasn't criminal.

Her husband, Gerald Hitchler, left his loaded handgun in a men's restroom at Egg Harbor Fun Park in August. Prosecutors reviewed the incident but didn't pursue charges.

Would we be calling for charges if this was a Law Enforcement Official who left her weapon unattended in a public setting?
