SVP Commitments – Evidence — Disposition Alternatives – Irrelevancy of DOC Supervision

State v. Owen Budd, 2007 WI App 245
For Budd: Steven P. Weiss, SPD, Madison Appellate

Issue/Holding: Evidence that SVP respondent would be under DOC supervision if not committed under ch. 980 properly excluded as irrelevant, ¶¶8-14 (“the fact of supervision is irrelevant to whether Budd is a sexually violent person under § 980.01(7),” ¶14).The court in essence follows its statement in State v. Charles W. Mark, 2005 WI App 62, ¶47, affirmed 2006 WI 78, that mere fact of supervision is irrelevant, against challenge to that statement as dicta.
