Plea-Withdrawal – Newly Discovered Evidence

State v. John D. Tiggs, Jr., 2010AP1530, District 2, 6/29/11

court of appeals decision (1-judge, not for publication); pro se; case activity

Tiggs knew that DNA test results would be released in mere hours, yet chose to enter his no-contest plea. His postconviction motion to withdraw the plea, based on a theory that the test results amount to newly discovered evidence, fails to satisfy the requirements that the evidence was discovered after conviction and that the defendant wasn’t negligent in seeking the evidence. State v. McCallum, 208 Wis. 2d 463, 561 N.W.2d 707 (1997), discussed.
