02.04.13 | Legally Speaking: Wisconsin's Victim Advocates

Wisconsin was one of the first states to guarantee rights to criminal victims, and three professionals talked about how they do that in a Feb. 4 edition of Legally Speaking. Often, victim advocates are the “bearer of bad news,” said Waukesha County Victim Witness Coordinator Jen Dunn. Laurie Anderson, president of the Wisconsin Victim Witness Professionals, said demands range from helping sex assault victims, families of murder victims, victims of identity theft and victims of thefts and home burglaries. Jill Karofsky, director of the state Justice Department’s Office of Crime Victim Services, said programs in larger counties have more ways to help victims than in rural counties.

01.04.13 | Legally Speaking: Shortage of Assistant District Attorneys

The decades-long shortage of assistant district attorneys has meant that fewer misdemeanor crimes are being filed, more crimes are being referred to municipal courts, and crime victims receive less help,  two district attorneys and the president of the Wisconsin Victim Assistance Professionals said in the January edition of Legally Speaking. Adam Gerol, Ozaukee County DA and president of the Wisconsin District Attorneys Association; Waukesha County DA Brad Schimel and Jefferson County Victim Assistance Coordinator said they are more hopeful than ever that Gov. Scott Walker and legislators will authorize more prosecutors and agree to raise the salaries for current assistants. A first-year ADA earns about $49,000 and, after several years on the job, will only be paid $52,000, Schimel said.

Not all judges are assessing the $92 felony/$67 misdemeanor fee after someone is convicted, and there is no one responsible for making sure they are collected. Panelists were Jill Karofsky of the state Department of Justice, Waukesha DA Brad Schimel and Jennifer Dunn, Waukesha County victim witness coordinator.
