Double Jeopardy – Multiplicity: Attempted Child Sexual Exploitation and Child Enticement

State v. Gabriel Derango, 2000 WI 89, 236 Wis. 2d 721, 613 N.W.2d 833, affirming State v. DeRango 229 Wis. 2d 1, 599 N.W.2d 27
For Derango: Robert G. LeBell

Issue: Whether conviction for both attempted child sexual exploitation and child enticement as a result of a single act is multiplicitous.

Holding: The two offenses are elementally distinct and therefore aren’t the “same” for multiplicity purposes, ¶¶32-34; nor is there any indication that the legislature intended to prohibit cumulative punishment for these different offenses, ¶¶34-36.
