From the Wisconsin Criminal Jury Instructions (University of Wisconsin Law School), I share information on First Degree Sexual Assault: Sexual Contact or Intercourse Without Consent Causing Great Bodily Harm. 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 - First Degree Sexual Assault: Sexual Contact or Intercourse Without Consent Causing Great Bodily Harm, as defined in §940.225(1)(a) of the Criminal Code of Wisconsin, is committed by one who has sexual [contact] [intercourse] with another person without consent and causes great bodily harm to that person.
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 three elements were present.
Elements of the Crime That the State Must Prove:
1) The defendant had sexual [contact] [intercourse] with (name of victim).
2) (Name of victim) did not consent to the sexual [contact] [intercourse].
3) The defendant caused great bodily harm to (name of victim).
Meaning of "Did Not Consent":
"Did not consent" means that (name of victim) did not freely agree to have sexual [contact] [intercourse] with the defendant. In deciding whether (name of victim) did not consent, you should consider what she/he said and did, along with all the other facts and circumstances. This element does not require that (name of victim) offered physical resistance.
Meaning of "Great Bodily Harm":
"Great bodily harm" means serious bodily injury. [Injury which creates a substantial risk of death, or which causes permanent disfigurement, or which causes a permanent or protracted loss or impairment of the function of any bodily member or organ, or other serious bodily injury is great bodily harm.]
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 05/22/2018 through 5:00 a.m. on 05/23/2018, MPD received 519 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 519 calls for service for the past 24-hours this is how the calls came in per district: Central (77), East (112), Midtown (69), North (93), South (55), West (78), and Other (35). 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".
**Priority only calls from 5:25 p.m. to 8:45 p.m. due to calls for service.
