Enhancers — Applicability — Underlying Crime Required — Violation of Harassment Injunction (§ 813.125(4)) Subject to Enhancement

State v. Michael A. Sveum,  2002 WI App 105, PFR filed 5/10/02
For Sveum: Ian A.J. Pitz

Issue/Holding: A repeater enhancement applies only to a crime, which is an offense prohibited by state law and punishable by fine and/or imprisonment. Violation of harassment injunction fits this definition and therefore supports repeater enhancement. State v. Carpenter, 179 Wis. 2d 838, 508 N.W.2d 69 (Ct. App. 1993) (contempt doesn’t support repeater enhancement), distinguished. ¶¶7-17.
