Criminal Appeals Briefs p. 3
[PREVIOUS]12 State v. Demetrius Grayson: The police were ordered not to mention that they had arrested Grayson on an eariler occasion. An officer mentioned it to the jury anyway. The court denied a motion for mistrial
State v. Corey Young: Young was charged with first degree intentional homicide. He reached a plea agreement with the State where he would plead guilty and the state would recommend that he be eligible for supervised release in forty years. The court then sentenced Young to life in prison and made him eligible for supervised release in fifty years. The judge offered no explanation on the record for why fifty years of ineligibility was required. On appeal Young argues that the trial court abused its sentencing discretion.
State v. Donte Moss: Moss was charged with first degree reckless injury. Moss had a beef with with his cousin, Green, and the disagreement escalated into a fist-fight. Green claimed that after the fist-fight Moss ordered his (Moss's) brother to shoot him (Green). Green ended up being shot in the arm. The issue on this appeal is whether the trial court erred in denying Moss's motion for a mistrial because Green unexpectedly testified that Moss had torched Green's mother's car. Additionally, Moss argued that the trial court abused its sentencing discretion by not placing on the record a nexus between the factors considered and the sentence imposed.
State v. Mellissa Jacobson: The issue on appeal was whether the trial court erred in denying the defendant's motion to suppress evidence due to a warrantless arrest without probable cause. State v. Montrell McDade: McDade pleaded guilty to first degree reckless homicide. He argued on appeal that he received ineffective assistance of counsel in deciding to enter the plea. State v. Chad Ziegler: Ziegler was convicted of sexual assault. He argued on appeal that the trial court erred in allowing the State to present evidence of other occasions when Ziegler had sex with an underage girl at the family cabin.
State v. Thomas Zaruba: Zaruba was convicted of second degree sexual assault for having sexual intercourse with his underaged girlfriend. The court sentenced him to eleven years in prison. This issue on this appeal is whether the trial court abused its sentencing discretion.
In Interest of Vanessa P. This is an appeal from a judgment terminating Robert's parental rights to Vanessa. In the appeal Robert argues that the termination of parental rights statute denies him substantive due process. The statute at issue is Sec. 48.415(7), Wis. Stats., which provides grounds to terminate parental rights where there is incestuous parenthood.
State v. Howard Carter: Howard Carter was involuntarily committed under Chapter 980. At Carter's trial, three psychologists testified. All three doctors agreed that Carter had antisocial personality disorder; however, only one of these doctors believed that Carter had a "paraphelia" (i.e. a sexual attraction) to non-consent of his partner. On appeal, Carter argues that the evidence was insufficient as a matter of law to support the jury's verdict that he was a sexually violent person. The diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder, standing alone, is not the sort of mental condition that permits a state to involuntarily commit a person. The lone diagnosis of paraphelia, according to Carter, was not credible because it was based only on the speculation that one of Carter's victims did not consent; however, there was no evidence that Carter was sexually aroused by the the lack of consent (as opposed to simply being indifferent as to whether the victim consented)

he trial court level Thomas entered a no contest plea to a reduced charge of second degree homicide; however, in determining whether there was a sufficient factual basis for the plea the trial judge asked Thomas whether he agreed to the facts in the complaint and Thomas said that he did not. Nonetheless, the court accepted the plea. After he was sentenced Thomas attempted to withdraw his no contest plea on the grounds that there was no factual basis. The trial court denied the motion. On appeal the Wisconsin Supreme Court held that there is no requirement that the defendant personally admit facts sufficient to constitute the offense. All that is required is that a factual basis be found somewhere in the record. You may read the Supreme Court's opinion by clicking the case name above.
