Following being convicted of a crime, there are various actions a person may be able to take to try to challenge the conviction. These could include actions related to DNA evidence. For example, in some instances, a convicted individual might request that DNA testing be done on evidence that was not previously tested or had previously been tested with methods less accurate than currently available ones.
Here in Wisconsin, state law sets up various rules regarding the requesting of such post-conviction testing. This includes rules on: the requirements for making such a request, the process of making such a request and what a court must find to order such testing.
