Sequestration — Prosecutor Talking to Witness During Break

State v. Johnny L. Green, 2002 WI 68, affirming unpublished court of appeals opinion
For Green: Nicolas G. Griswold

¶40. Green contends that the prosecutor, not the witness, violated the sequestration order by conversing with the witness during trial…. Green has not provided any support for the contention that a prosecutor violates a sequestration order by merely talking to his or her witnesses. There are no allegations that Haack heard testimony of other witnesses in the courtroom, that Haack discussed her testimony with other witnesses, or that the prosecutor discussed the testimony of other witnesses with Haack. We find no violation of the order in this case.
