Johnson v. U.S., USSC No. 08-6925

USSC decision

Armed Career Criminal Act
State conviction for battery, which requires only intentional physical contact no matter how slight, doesn’t qualify as “violent” under federal Armed Career Criminal Act, 18 U. S. C. §922(g)(1).

There appears to be no Wisconsin equivalent to the ACCA, which severely limits the utility of this case for state practice.
