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.

Sentence stayed for Wisconsin teen in sexual assault case

A Wisconsin teenager recently avoided a prison term after being sentenced for serious sexual assault charges. The terms of the sentence given to the teenager were 18 months in prison and 18 months of extended supervision, but the judge stayed the sentence and placed the teenager on probation for five years. The judge reprimanded the teen and advised him that if he violates the terms of his probation, he will be sent to prison. If he behaves and meets all conditions of his probation, the teen will not see any prison time -- at least not for the latest sexual assault convictions (he was previously sentenced to a year in the Racine County Jail in another sexual assault case from Walworth County involving the same victims).The teen was most recently convicted on two counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child and stood accused of having sexual relations with three teenage boys in Racine County. According to the boy's lawyer, the victims also happened to be his friends. The boys apparently met when they were 10 or 11 years old. At the time of the alleged assaults, the accused teenager was 17, and the younger boys were 14 years old.

Young man pleads guilty to sexual assault of 14-year-old

A 25-year-old Wisconsin man recently pled guilty in La Cross County Circuit Court to third degree sexual assault. He was sentenced to three and a half years in prison. The incident that led to the charges did not become a criminal case until the father of the alleged victim found out that she was pregnant.Reportedly, the story leading up to the initial charges involved an online interaction between the young man and a 14-year-old girl he met on Facebook. Prosecutors claimed that the two agreed to meet in August 2010 at a public park, where they reportedly had sex in a bathroom. When the father of the girl discovered that she was pregnant, he reported the situation to the police.

Internet sex crimes charges against Wisconsin man

Readers of this blog are likely aware that the law can take a very harsh stand against sex crimes, even if they only occur on the Internet, as viewing or even discussing underage sexual contact is taken very seriously. With that in mind, readers may be interested in the case of a 30-year-old Wisconsin man who is now facing half a dozen felony charges related to child enticement.
