Feel Good Friday:

How about a little bit of a feel good Friday story!

LCPD responds to a variety of crimes. Some are major crimes; however, there are also some property crimes that some people would consider less serious. No matter the crime, if we have viable information to follow up on, we will try to solve that crime.

Here Lt. Matt Malott was able to recover a gumball machine stolen from a local restaurant. Not the most serious crime, but Lt. Malott put in the effort to clear this crime! Besides, we kinda like this photo!

LEARN ABOUT YOUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM – Post #3:
Yesterday was the “Initial Appearance” for the individuals arrested as part of our post on Tuesday the 16th “Burglary Investigation Leads to ‘One Stop, Drug Shop’ and Loaded Hand Gun”. At the “Initial Appearance” the District Attorney’s Office filed the “Criminal Complaint” with the Court. We will look at these 2 parts of our criminal justice process.

The “Criminal Complaint” is filed with the Court by the District Attorney’s Office and is presented at the “Initial Appearance”. The “Criminal Complaint” is usually based off the police reports filed to support the criminal charges against an individual, but may not be exactly the same. The District Attorney’s Office will review the police reports and may alter the charges based on what they believe is correct for prosecution. The District Attorney’s Office may even choose not to file charges against the individual. The “Initial Appearance” for those arrested in this incident occurred yesterday afternoon. In our case the District Attorney’s Office filed basically the same charges that were referred by the police. The only notable exception was the addition of “Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place” charge added to Gwenee Lawson.

The “Initial Appearance” is usually one of the first court appearances for a defendant where they will be presented with the “Criminal Complaint” and the probable cause for the charge. During the hearing yesterday the court made minor adjustments to the already established bonds, they set dates for future court hearings, and established the need for legal representation for a couple of the defendants. Below are the specifics for each individual associated with this case:

• Dai’Twon E’Shawn Cowson – Was out of jail on a Signature Bond, however has new criminal charges (Felony Bailjumping & Fruad of Taxi) and is now in jail with another initial appearance set for today.

• Jerrad A. Simms – Out of jail on a Signature Bond has a hearing set for 01/25/18 to determine if legal representation has been established so the court can move on to a Preliminary Hearing.

• Lennel L. Davis Jr. – Still in jail on a $2500 Cash Bond, has a hearing set for 01/25/18 to determine if legal representation has been established so the court can move on to a Preliminary Hearing.

• Debrian A. Hayes – Still in jail on a $2500 Cash Bond, has a hearing set for 01/25/18 to determine if legal representation has been established so the court can move on to a Preliminary Hearing.

• Jesse J. Stringer – Out of jail, $2500 Cash Bond was posted, Preliminary Hearing set for 01/26/18, no firearms and GPS monitoring.

• Gwenee Lawson – Released the night of the incident on a Signature Bond, Preliminary Hearing set for 01/26/18.

LEARN ABOUT YOUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM – Post #2:

As we continue to follow the individuals arrested as part of yesterday’s post “Burglary Investigation Leads to ‘One Stop, Drug Shop’ and Loaded Hand Gun”, today we will look at 2 more parts of our criminal justice process: The use of a

Signature Bond by Law Enforcement and The Bond Hearing.
Wisconsin allows law enforcement officers to release individuals on “Signature Bonds”. A Signature Bond is essentially a signed promissory that they will appear in court on a set date. In general, this can be used without judicial authorization for many non-felony crimes, but not all. Additionally, it is used for individuals with “local ties” and that are not believed to be a flight risk. For felony charges, an officer may use a signature bond with judicial authorization. There are usually specific circumstances that will lead officers to make this request. In our case, investigators requested judicial authorization to use a Signature Bond for Gwenee Lawson based on the individual’s local ties as well as the presence of children to be cared for and a recent medical procedure.

All arrested individuals will have an “Initial Appearance” with a “Criminal Complaint” filed by the District Attorney’s office at which time the court will usually address “Bond”. In our case, the District Attorney’s office was not ready to file a “Criminal Complaint” therefore the court moved to a “Bond Hearing” based on the charges law enforcement referred to the DA’s office. The “Initial Appearance” and “Criminal Complaint” are schedule for court tomorrow and we will discuss both of those items tomorrow.

As for “The Bond Hearing” we will look at bond in general. Wisconsin State Statute 969.01(1) & (4) guide the application of bond by the judiciary. The guiding principles laid out in 969.01(1) are “a defendant arrested for a criminal offense is eligible for release under reasonable conditions designed to assure his or her appearance in court, protect members of the community from serious bodily harm, or prevent the intimidation of witnesses.” 969.01 (4) articulates a litany of considerations including criminal history, residency, history of non-compliance with the justice system for previous offenses, severity of the offense and ability to post bond, just to name a few.

In our case below were the recommendations from the District Attorney’s Office for bonds & ultimately what the judge set for bonds:

• Dai’Twon E’Shawn Cowson – DA Requested a Signature Bond & Judge gave a Signature Bond in lieu of $1000 with no additional conditions.
• Jerrad A. Simms – DA requested any cash bond & Judge gave a Signature Bond in lieu of $1000 with no additional conditions.
• Lennel L. Davis Jr. – DA requested $10,000 cash bond & Judge gave a $2500 Cash Bond with no additional conditions.
• Debrian A. Hayes – DA requested $2500 cash bond & Judge gave a $2500 cash bond with no additional conditions.
• Jesse J. Stringer – DA requested $5000 cash bond & Judge gave a $2500 cash bond with conditions of no firearms and comply with Justice Support Services/GPS house arrest.

LEARN ABOUT YOUR CRIMINAL JUSTICE SYSTEM – Post #1:

The La Crosse Police from time to time will post about different aspects of our justice system without really explaining the phase of the justice system we are referring to. So we thought it would be a good idea to run a series of posts that help to clarify different aspects of the criminal justice system. To do this we will be using our recent arrests titled “Burglary Investigation Leads to ‘One Stop, Drug Shop’ and Loaded Hand Gun”. There have been 6 people charged/arrested in this case, so we will likely get a chance to cover many different areas with this incident.

In this post we are going to cover 2 legal aspects of this case: The Search Warrant and 48 Hour Judicial Review.

When Police apply for a search warrant, there is a threshold of “Probable Cause” that must be met. The 4th Amendment protects the public from unreasonable searches and seizure. In order to balance this right against the needs of a police investigation, a judge must review the facts of the case and authorize the search warrant. Search warrants can be the key to clearing a case and arresting the suspects (like our case); however, the warrant must meet the legal standards to get judicial approval.

As part of this investigation the La Crosse Police took 5 individuals into custody and charged one individual who was released on a signature bond. The 5 individuals that were taken into custody ultimately ended up in the La Crosse County Jail. The arrests occurred on Friday, January 12th. It is required by law that anyone who is being held in custody for more than 48 hours have the probable cause for the arrest reviewed by a judge. This is to ensure that police have met the “Probable Cause” standard and someone is not unduly detained. In this case, the judicial 48 hour review occurred on Sunday morning the 14th.

As you can see already, much of our initial police work is dependent on judicial oversight. Continue to follow our “About your Criminal Justice System” posts for more details as we follow this case through the court system.
