Sentencing – Review – Excessiveness – Maximum Doesn’t “Shock Public Sentiment”

State v. Aaron O. Schreiber, 2002 WI App 75, PFR filed 3/12/02
For Schreiber: William J. Donarski

Issue/Holding: The sentencing court properly considered the three primary sentencing factors — gravity of offense, defendant’s character, need to protect public — and the weight assigned each is delegated primarily to the trial court. (Schreiber’s argument that the sentencing court shouldn’t have considered his gang affiliation, because he’d already been punished for that by having his probation revoked, is dismissed out of hand.) The maximum sentence here doesn’t “shock public sentiment.” ¶¶14-15.
