7-7-17 driving law

MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The state Supreme Court says a law that declares killing someone while knowingly driving after license revocation is either a misdemeanor or a felony is constitutional.  Statutes say the crime can be charged as a misdemeanor punishable by a year in jail or a felony punishable by up to six years in prison.  Ernesto Villamil argued the law is ambiguous and unconstitutional after he was sentenced to prison for killing a person in a Waukesha County collision in 2012. Villamil knew his license had been revoked.  The Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the law provides fair notice that the crime could be a felony. Regardless, the justices ordered Villamil to be re-sentenced because the circuit judge didn’t consider all the factors in the crash.
