Petition For Termination Of Lifetime Supervision
Under Wisconsin law, a convicted sex offender on lifetime supervision may file a petition for termination of lifetime supervision with the court that ordered the lifetime supervision if he or she has not been convicted of a crime that was committed during lifetime supervision after a period of 15 years has elapsed since the date of placement on lifetime supervision.
When the court receives the petition, the court will refer it to the district attorney who had previously prosecuted the serious sex offense that was the basis for the order of lifetime supervision. The district attorney will research the record of the person on lifetime supervision to determine whether any crimes have been prosecuted against him or her during the period of lifetime supervision, and report all findings to the court.
If the district attorney's report indicates that the person on lifetime supervision was convicted of any criminal offenses during the period of lifetime supervision, the court will deny the petition without a hearing. If the DA's report indicates that the person on lifetime supervision has not been convicted of any criminal offenses during the supervision, then a entire process begins involving an evaluation of the person on lifetime supervision, notification to the department of corrections so that they may submit a report including information concerning the person's conduct while on lifetime supervision and an opinion as to whether lifetime supervision of the person is still necessary to protect the public. A hearing is scheduled to hear the petition.
The court will consider any relevant information and request any additional information as it deems necessary to make a decision as to whether the person's petition for termination of lifetime supervision shall be granted that request. If the court denies the petition for termination of lifetime supervision, the person may not file a subsequent petition requesting termination of lifetime supervision until at least 3 years have elapsed since the most recent petition was denied.
No criminal defense attorney can make promises about the outcome of a hearing to revoke lifetime supervision, and the attorney at Van Wagner & Wood are no exception to that rule, but they are exceptional attorneys with a long history of favorable outcomes in many types of criminal defense cases.
