Language barrier impedes Waukesha prostitution case

Over the past several weeks, police have been investigating Waukesha massage parlors accused of engaging in prostitution. On December 14, 2016, police arrested four women but have yet to bring charges against them. One reason for the delay is the ongoing nature of the investigation. Another reason, perhaps more relevant, is the limited translation capabilities available to law enforcement officials. 

Can Wisconsin juveniles face child pornography possession charges?

Felony charges can be brought against a person here in Wisconsin if they are accused of conduct that falls under the state's definition of possession of child pornography. This is the case whether the accused is an adult or a juvenile. The state's child pornography laws apply to minors as well as adults.

Why you should talk to your kids about sexting

Nowadays, teenagers are glued to their phones. They are both a status symbol as well as a way to communicate and take in the world around them. Most people assume teens are performing innocuous activities like checking their friends' Facebook statuses or retweeting something a celebrity said on Twitter. Unfortunately, while this might be true in a majority of cases, it may not be the case in all situations.

"Upskirting" now a felony sex crime in Wisconsin

It has long been a crime to take a picture of people under their clothes without their knowledge or consent in Wisconsin, sometimes known as "upskirting."

When does teen sexting become child porn? Answer not always clear

In recent posts, we have discussed numerous important issues in the criminal justice system.

These problems can be seen here in Wisconsin and around the country.

State courts begin to challenge sex offender residency restrictions

Like all other states, Wisconsin has detailed laws that place both requirements and restrictions on convicted sex offenders. In addition to requiring them to register publicly as offenders, state legislators have passed restrictions on where offenders can live and what kinds of jobs they can and cannot have.

Case raises issues of sexual consent among dementia patients

There's little debate about the fact that sex crimes are among the most reviled and taboo offenses a person can be accused of. In the court of public opinion, particular sex crimes are sometimes regarded as more heinous than murder. Unfortunately, this public hysteria too often makes it difficult to have the tough-but-necessary conversations about sex crimes - especially cases where the accused individual's guilt isn't necessarily clear.
