Continuance — Materiality of Absent Witness

State v. William F. Williams, 2000 WI App 123, 237 Wis.2d 591, 614 N.W.2d 11

For Williams: Steven P. Weiss, SPD, Madison Appellate

Issue: Whether the trial court improperly refused to adjourn trial so that the defense could secure presence of a witness.

Holding: Because the absent witness’s proposed testimony was vague as to details in support of alibi, the trial court didn’t err in finding insufficient materiality to support adjournment. ¶16.
