Wisconsin Court of Appeals
Sexually Violent Persons – discharge — expert testimony — equal protection
Quinton Keith Washington appeals an order denying his petition for discharge from commitment as a sexually violent person pursuant to Wis. Stat. Chapter 980 (2009-10). Washington argues: (1) that the circuit court erred in denying his objection to “extrapolation testimony” about his risk to sexually reoffend; and (2) that he was denied his right to equal protection of the law because the State did not have to meet the requirements of the newly enacted modification to the expert testimony statute, 2011 Wis. Act 2, in offering extrapolation testimony against him during his discharge trial. We resolve these issues against Washington. Therefore, we affirm. This opinion will not be published.
