§ 974.06 – “Custody” Requirement – Fulfilled Where Defendant on Probation

State v. Donald Mentzel, 218 Wis. 2d 734, 581 N.W.2d 581 (Ct. App. 1998)
For Mentzel: Raymond M. Dall’Osto


We agree with the logic of Napoles. For purposes of § 974.06, Stats., the reality of a probationary status is that it results directly from the trial court’s consideration of dispositional alternatives at a sentencing hearing. Subject to any other bars, we conclude that all defendants on probation have standing to pursue postconviction relief under § 974.06.
