Wisconsin Court of Appeals

Criminal

Sentencing – discretion

APPEAL from a judgment and an order of the circuit court for Milwaukee County:  DAVID A. HANSHER and TIMOTHY M. WITKOWIAK, Judges.  Affirmed.

Cassandra D. Williams appeals an amended judgment of conviction, entered on her Alford plea, for one count of food stamp fraud, value greater than $5000.  See Wis. Stat. § 49.795(6) (2011-12). She also appeals the order denying her postconviction motion for resentencing. Because the circuit court properly exercised its discretion when it sentenced her to the maximum, we affirm.
