WI Court of Appeals – District II
Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. John E. Sowin
Case No.: 2019AP647-CR
Officials: Reilly, P.J., Gundrum and Davis, JJ.
Focus: Sufficiency of Evidence
A jury found John E. Sowin guilty of fifteen counts of possession of child pornography. We reject his contentions that his motions to suppress the fruits of the search warrant leading to the discovery of the pornography should have been granted and that the evidence should have been excluded at trial as irrelevant or more prejudicial than probative. We also disagree that the evidence was insufficient to support the verdict. We affirm the judgment.
