Civil Commitment – dangerousness — sufficiency of the evidence

Michael H. appeals an order of the circuit court, entered on a jury verdict, involuntarily committing him to the custody of Outagamie County for the purposes of mental health treatment. Michael argues the County failed to meet its burden of proving he is “dangerous,” pursuant to Wis. Stat. § 51.20(1)(a)2. We disagree and affirm the commitment order. This opinion will not be published.
