"Clearly his actions and behaviors indicate that he's responsible for them and ultimately she does not support and NGI (not guilty by reason of insanity) plea in this case," said defense attorney Bradley Schraven.
So Enneper opted to withdraw his plea of not guilty by reason of insanity on one count of arson to no contest. Enneper entered similar pleas on another arson count and a count of burglary. He said he understood the rights he was giving up, and said current mental health treatment wasn't an obstacle in his decision.
"I have been in Bellin twice now for suicidal thoughts and intent," Enneper said during Judge Michael T. Judge's questioning of his decision to change his plea.
Enneper was found guilty on the one arson count. The remaining charges were dismissed.
Defense attorney Schraven says even before the mental health examiner decided there was no basis for an insanity plea, Ennerp made it known that he'd plead no contest.
"Vincent had told me from the beginning this was situation where he wanted to accept responsibility for what he did. He wanted to move on with it.," Schraven said.
Arson is a Class "C" felony. That means Enneper faces up to 40-years in prison and/or a $100-thousand fine when sentenced August 21.
