Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Juveniles – delinquency — fact finding hearings — evidence
Noah L. appeals from an order of the trial court adjudicating him to be delinquent. Noah L. argues the order should be vacated because the trial court improperly delayed adjudication until a dispositional hearing where it considered inadmissible evidence contrary to Wisconsin statute and principles of due process. We agree that any adjudication should have been done at the conclusion of the fact-finding hearing, and thus we vacate the order. This opinion will not be published.
