Double Jeopardy – Multiplicity: criminal charge and juvenile discipline for same conduct

State v. Jamerrel Everett, 231 Wis.2d 616, 605 N.W.2d 633 (Ct. App. 1999)
For Everett: Timothy T. Kay; Michael Patrick Cotter

Issue: Whether the prosecution constituted double jeopardy because the defendant had been disciplined for the same conduct by the juvenile institution.

Holding: Although prison discipline may carry punitive aspects, its principal purposes are institutional order and rehabilitation, State v. Fonder, 162 Wis. 2d 591, 469 N.W.2d 922 (Ct. App. 1991), which don’t invoke double jeopardy protections; the same applies to juvenile facilities. ¶29.
