§ 904.04 – Admissibility of Misconduct Evidence Despite Prior Acquittal

State v. David Arredondo, 2004 WI App 7, PFR filed 1/22/04
For Arredondo: James A. Rebholz

Issue/Holding: Prior acquittal of sexual assault didn’t prevent admissibility of testimony from that trial: the test is whether a reasonable jury could find by preponderance of the evidence that the defendant committed the misconduct, State v. Landrum, 191 Wis. 2d 107, 117, 528 N.W.2d 36, 41 (Ct. App. 1995), and despite the prior acquittal the jury could reasonably draw such a conclusion. ¶48.
