Sex Offender Registration – Lift-of-Stay Hearing

WI Court of Appeals – District III

Case Name: State of Wisconsin v. T.A.,

Case No.: 2020AP1350

Officials: HRUZ, J.

Focus: Sex Offender Registration – Lift-of-Stay Hearing

Tanner appeals an order lifting the stay on a previously imposed requirement that he register as a sex offender, and an order denying his motion for postdisposition relief. Tanner seeks a new hearing to address whether the stay on his sex offender registration should be lifted (“lift-of-stay hearing”), arguing that the circuit court relied on an inaccurate interpretation of his Juvenile Sex Offender Assessment Protocol-II (“J-SOAP-II”) score when it concluded that the stay should be lifted. We agree, and we therefore reverse and remand for a new lift-of-stay hearing.
