SVP – Sufficiency of evidence

State v. Frank Curiel, 227 Wis.2d 389, 597 N.W.2d 697 (1999), affirming unpublished decision
For Curiel: Jack. C. Hoag, Sedor & Hoag.

Issue/Holding: “¶7 Is the verdict of the court supported by the evidence? We hold that the evidence adduced at trial was sufficient to support the commitment of the defendant under Wis. Stat. ch. 980.” The testimony of a single expert witness that Curiel was much more likely than not to reoffend suffices to uphold the commitment (even though that witness did not personally interview Curiel). ¶60.
