A review of her record raised significant questions from her peers. Pleas are common in every county, but an NGI plea in a domestic violence case is not common. said three Wisconsin District Attorneys in a joint statement. That these cases are routinely resolved this way by Susan Happ is quite odd and deserves more scrutiny. Outagamie County District Attorney Carrie Schneider, Calumet County District Attorney Nick Bolz and Ozaukee County District Attorney Adam Gerol called for a further review of Happ’s record. Happ has yet to explain her actions. In her short time in office she’s allowed more than a dozen abusers make that plea. She doesn’t request an additional medical examination and takes the word of one particular doctor as gospel. ã   13 cases in six years. ã   Happ personally appeared in court on 12 of the cases. ã   James Freiburger was the doctor in all 13 cases. Susan Happ doesn't take domestic violence seriously, said State Senator Alberta Darling. She takes a  personal interest in these domestic violence cases and agrees with defense attorneys and this one particular doctor who sees insanity as a sure-fire path to freedom for abusers. Susan Happ is an enabler and a risk to the  public safety of Wisconsin's women. Her stats are an anomaly as can be seen in a comparison to a nearby county of a similar size. Happ’s opponent, a district attorney from a much larger county, does not blindly let domestic abusers claim an insanity defense. Happ’s actions stand out as particularly lenient. Unlike Susan Happ, her peers do not let domestic abusers avoid jail time with NGI pleas. If you commit domestic violence in Susan Happ's Jefferson County, you'd be crazy not to plead insanity, it's Happ's get out of jail free card, said Schimel campaign manager Johnny Koremenos. Susan Happ goes out of her way to let abusers stay free, we can't afford to give her the keys to the state's Department of Justice.  Nearby Ozaukee County, which is slightly larger than Happ's Jefferson County, only had seven cases resolved  by NGI plea, none of which involved domestic abuse, during the same time period Happ's office had more than 30 cases resolved by NGI plea, 13 of which involved domestic violence. --MORE--   Law Enforcement’s Choice BradSchimel.com   www.BradSchimel.com   Paid for by Schimel for Attorney General, Don Taylor, Treasurer ã   State of Wisconsin vs. Michael T.
