From the Wisconsin Criminal Jury Instructions (University of Wisconsin Law School), I share information on Entry into a Locked Vehicle. If you were sitting on an empaneled jury, these are the instructions, without all of the complex "legalese" that the Judge would read prior to going into jury deliberations.
Statutory Definition of the Crime – Entry into a Locked Vehicle, as defined in §943.11 of the Criminal Code of Wisconsin, is committed by one who intentionally enters the locked and enclosed portion or compartment of the vehicle of another without consent and with intent to steal.
State's Burden of Proof: Before you may find the defendant guilty of this offense, the State must prove by evidence which satisfies you beyond a reasonable doubt that the following four elements were present.
Elements of the Crime That the State Must Prove:
1) The defendant intentionally entered the locked and enclosed portion or compartment of the vehicle of another.
["Vehicle" means any self-propelled device for moving persons or property or pulling implements from one place to another, whether the device is operated on land, rails, water, or in the air.]
2) The defendant intentionally entered without the consent of a person authorized to give consent.
3) The defendant knew that the vehicle belonged to another person and knew that the entry was without consent.
4) The defendant entered the (vehicle) (compartment) with intent to steal.
The information contained in my blog is derived from notes provided by MPD Officers-In-Charge (OIC) at the end of their shifts. Most narratives represent early and preliminary information that was gathered by an OIC from those in the field who were actively working cases. The OIC is sharing what they were being told, in the moment. In many instances, facts and circumstances, even the type of crime listed, can change as officers, detectives and investigators continue their work.
From 5:00 a.m. on 06/19/2018 through 5:00 a.m. on 06/20/2018, MPD received 451 calls for service. This number does not include parking complaints or 911 misdials. For purposes of clarification, the following abbreviations are short-hand for race designations: W=White, AA=African American, NA=Native American, H=Hispanic, ME=Middle Eastern, A=Asian, MR=Mixed Race, U=Unknown. MPD shifts are staggered as follows: 1st detail=7 a.m. to 3 p.m., 2nd detail=12 p.m. to 8 p.m., 3rd detail=3 p.m. to 11 p.m., 4th detail=8 p.m. to 4 a.m., 5th detail=11 p.m. to 7 a.m.
To further break down the 451 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (89), East (80), Midtown (55), North (61), South (52), West (82), and Other (32). Other=these are calls for service that either do not have a sector listed or the sector is not in the City. For example, if one of our officers assists another law enforcement agency, their sector is not listed in our districts so therefore it is listed under "other".
