RACINE — Lawyers on Friday said the state’s top prosecutors plan to appeal a Racine County judge’s ruling that overturned a man’s conviction in a 1995 attempted rape, which ultimately led to his being freed after 20 years behind bars.

Daniel G. Scheidell, 66, of Racine, has been free for about a month after Racine County Circuit Court Judge John Jude overturned his two-decades-old conviction in June and ordered a new trial.

The state Attorney General’s Office this month filed a notice that it intends to appeal, but the formal appeal hasn’t yet been filed, one of Scheidell’s defense attorneys, Steven Wright, said after a hearing on Friday.

“I’m certainly not giving up.”
