State v. Thomas W. Koeppen, 2000 WI App 121, 237 Wis.2d 418, 614 N.W.2d 530
For Koeppen: Richard L. Zaffiro
Issue: Whether a prior act involving drunken resisting arrest was properly admitted into evidence.
Holding: The prior act was admitted on the permissible purposes of showing intent and absence of mistake; had probative value due to strong similarities to the current offense; and, given high probative value along with cautionary instruction, wasn’t unfairly prejudicial. ¶¶28-31.
