The Wisconsin Supreme Court will not hear Donald Tappa’s appeal, leaving his conviction in place for setting fire to the Log Jam Saloon in Oconto County. Tappa, 43, was convicted of nine counts, including arson, for the Dec. 25, 2013 fire. He is serving a 20-year prison term. Earlier this year, a state appeals court rejected his arguments for a new trial. This week, the Supreme Court said it would not hear his appeal of that decision, which leaves the convictions in place.
