WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) -- The Marathon County Administrator will be suspended 30 days without pay after he participated in march in support of a teen accused of fatally stabbing a member of a rival gang.

Scott Corbett, of Corporation Counsel told NewsChannel 7 someone approached a county board member saying they were upset with Brad Karger's level participation during the demonstration. Corporation Counsel provides the county with legal guidance, along with drafting ordinances, contracts; and preparing legal opinions affecting the county.

The county's executive committee launched an investigation. Their findings were presented in closed session Tuesday during a county board meeting. Members then voted on the plan to discipline Karger.

Nearly 500 people participated in the march in downtown Wausau on May 31. Organizers called it an anti-bullying movement. Yang was 15-years-old when investigators said he fatally stabbed killing 13-year-old Isaiah Powell.
