Now this is a FIB.
At what point does his mom become an accomplice?
AFAIK, “no alcohol” is just a condition applied to bail for certain offenses, mainly assaults, drug offenses, and DUI.
I don’t even think they bother in those cases if you’re a child.
Those cards literally exist:
This idiot has a hard but workable self-defense claim, but he needs to play it very carefully. If this kind of public stupidity isn’t giving his lawyers nightmares, he’s got lousy lawyers.
Also, Wisconsin has weird liquor laws which I’m not going to look up, but there are use cases where you can drink in bars underage so that in itself isn’t necessarily a problem.
Didn’t she drive him across state lines to the site where he killed those people? In my completely not a lawyer mind, she’s already an accomplice.
I suppose the best way to address the “moral dilemma” imposed on cops when they deal with PBA card-carriers is to simply prohibit the very existence of such cards. Unfortunately, those in a position to propose and push through the prohibition really need the votes – and those voters carry guns.
This case is one time I’d be happy to receive a jury duty summons.
It’s legal to drink in a bar in Wisconsin with your parent. Wisconsin liquor laws are very lax.
He killed people with her gun. She should already be an accomplice.
I don’t understand that. Sure, for the 2nd set of shootings, it could be argued (badly), but I don’t see how the first shooting, where he was “defending property” against state law could fall under any self-defense statute.
last state to go to 21 after feds threatened highway funds. 1986 I think. There was a bar next to my high school that was basically for seniors at lunch break until then.
I thought a friend had bought the gun for him. Sadly, too many of these situations for me to keep them all straight.
We used to call the IL/WI line the “blood border” before they raised the legal drinking age to 21 since 18 yr olds would drive up to get drunk and then crash on the way home.
Probably he’s allowed to cross state lines for self-defense purposes.
They also have infinite DUI’s without any license or insurance removal. The logic is they’d rather you be in the system, licensed and with liability insurance, than driving without either if/when you get into another accident. Anecdotally, people with that many DUI’s don’t let pesky little pieces of plastic and paper stop them from driving.
The terms of his bail probably include a “do not commit any crimes while under bail” clause, so he will probably be awaiting trial in jail from now on. That is, if there is any justice in the world.
