WI Court of Appeals – District I
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. Corey R. Kucharski
Case No.: 2013AP557-CR
Officials: BRENNAN, J.
Focus: Court Application of Statute – Ineffective Assistance of Counsel
This case comes to us on remand from the Wisconsin Supreme Court, which reversed our split decision granting Corey Kucharski a discretionary reversal. In its remand instructions the supreme court directed us to address Kucharski’s three remaining unaddressed issues: (1) whether the trial court misapplied the elements of WIS. STAT. § 971.15 (2013- 14) ; (2) whether the trial court’s conclusions regarding mental responsibility lacked support in the record; and (3) whether Kucharski was entitled to a new trial due to ineffective assistance of counsel. See State v. Kucharski, 2015 WI 64, ¶12 n.19, 363 Wis. 2d 658, 866 N.W.2d 697.
