Involuntary Statement (Due to Immunity Grant) – Derivative Evidence: Experts’ Opinions

State v. Danny G. Harrell, 2008 WI App 37
For Harrell: Patrick M. Donnelly, SPD, Madison Appellate

Issue/Holding: Expert opinion that Harrell is sexually violent was derived from his compelled, incriminatory statement and therefore also inadmissible, ¶¶14-35.

The court essentially tracks the discussion in Mark, which therefore won’t be repeated, and applies it to the particular facts. The court also reserves authority to remand for a “ Kastigar” hearing, ¶32 n. 11, but decides that’s unnecessary on this record.
