IMPORTANT CASE UPDATE:  In the matter of State v. Adrian Jackson, on April 30, 2014 the Wisconsin Court of Appeals issued an opinion reversing Jackson's conviction.  In his brief before the court of appeals, attorney Jensen argued that the state should be required to disclose to the defense how the police knew that Jackson could be located in the apartment where he was arrested.  Jackson suspects that the police illegally used GPS tracking to locate him.  The court of appeals ordered the state to disclose this information.  The state is resisting.  The attorney general's office has filed a motion to reconsider.  We are awaiting the court's decision on that motion.  You may read attorney Jensen's brief, and you may also read the opinion of the Wisconsin Court of Appeals.


NEW MOTION: Motion to bar retrial and to dismiss on the grounds that the defendant's motion for a mistrial was prompted by prosecutorial misconduct.
