Wisconsin Court of Appeals


Sentencing — new factors

Altonio Laroy Chaney appeals an order denying his sentence-modification motion following his conviction on his plea, pursuant to North Carolina v. Alford, 400 U.S. 25 (1970) (defendants may plead guilty to crimes even though they contend that they are not guilty); see State v. Garcia, 192 Wis. 2d 845, 857–858, 532 N.W.2d 111, 115–116 (1995) (Alford pleas are permitted in Wisconsin.), to first-degree sexual assault of a child as party to a crime. See Wis. Stat. §§ 948.02(1)(b) & 939.05. Chaney argues that the circuit court should have modified his sentence because, he claims, there is a new factor that affects what his sentence should be. We affirm. Publication in the official reports is not recommended.
