State of Wisconsin vs. Timothy D. Russell

Milwaukee County Case Number 2012CF000053

This case is being appealed. If the court makes a decision in a case that a party disagrees with, the party may have the right to seek review by a higher court to determine if the trial court's decision was correct. Appeals are most often made after a trial or final decision in a case, but an appeal can also occur before a final decision.

Notice to employers: It may be a violation of state law to discriminate against a job applicant because of an arrest or conviction record. Generally speaking, an employer may refuse to hire an applicant on the basis of a conviction only if the circumstances of the conviction substantially relate to the particular job. For more information, see Wisconsin Statute 111.335 and the Department of Workforce Development's Arrest and Conviction Records under the Law publication.
