Milwaukee man reoffered plea deal in sexual assault case

When people in Milwaukee and elsewhere have been charged with a sexual offense they face potential consequences that can affect their lives and the lives of their loved ones in the present and future. A sex crimes conviction could lead to prison time, fines and the requirement to register as a sex offender. It is important that a person facing a serious sex crimes charge seek help in creating a strategic defense plan. A defense plan may help reduce the penalties the accused may face. In Milwaukee, a man who faced sexual assault and other charges has been given a plea deal for the second time.

Wisconsin man charged in 1989 sexual assault

DNA is widely used as evidence in criminal trials. In Wisconsin and across the country, this DNA evidence can be used in two ways: either to link an individual to a crime, or to prove his or her innocence. While DNA testing can be accurate, there are times when this evidence should be challenged. A man in Wisconsin is currently struggling with this very battle, as he has been accused of a crime that occurred more than 20 years ago. It was alleged that in 1989 he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl.

Release of Wisconsin sex offender delayed after housing denied

State law in Wisconsin stipulates that any convicted sex offender, after serving a prison sentence, will be released to the county where the alleged sex offense occurred.

However, sometimes the contract between the community member and the Department of Corrections falls through, resulting in a postponement of the sex offender's release.

2 Wisconsin teens plead not guilty to sexual assault of a child

This week's post relates in many ways to the topic of last week's entry: should consensual sex between teenagers result in jail time? As Wisconsin residents likely know, the matter isn't exactly cut and dry. Still, more often than not, criminal complaints are written to make conviction seem the only possible outcome of court proceedings. That is why a solid criminal defense will call into question the validity of a police report or a prosecutor's complaint, placing the burden of proof squarely on the prosecution and not on the defendant.

Should sexual contact between teenagers result in jail time?

Despite what police and media reports would have us believe, many sex crimes cases are not as black and white as they might seem. While being charged with a sex offense is always a very serious matter, readers in the Milwaukee area likely know that police officers gather evidence specifically with a view toward obtaining a conviction. But the will to convict is not the same thing as having enough evidence to send people to jail and label them sex offenders for the rest of their lives. With these issues in mind, Wisconsin residents may be interested to hear of a case involving a young man who was convicted of a sex offense after it was determined that, as a senior in high school, he had sex with his girlfriend, who was a 14-year-old freshman at the time.

Internet crimes: Wisconsin legislators consider changing the law

Wisconsin law may change with regard to how attempted child enticement is prosecuted. Attorney General J. B. Van Hollen supports a bill that is currently being considered by the Senate Judiciary Committee. If the bill is passed, state law would treat attempted child enticement the same as actually carrying out the crime.
