Motion for Postconviction Relief Wisconsin Stat 974.06
Wisconsin Stat. 974.06(4) requires that:
All grounds for relief available to a person under this section must be raised in his or her original, supplemental or amended motion.
Any ground finally adjudicated or not so raised, or knowingly, voluntarily and intelligently waived in the proceeding that resulted in the conviction or sentence or in any other proceeding the person has taken to secure relief may not be the basis for a subsequent motion, unless the court finds a ground for relief asserted which for sufficient reason was not asserted or was inadequately raised in the original, supplemental or amended motion.
The scope of a 974.06 postconviction motion is limited to jurisdictional or constitutional issues. See State v. Escalona-Naranjo, 185 Wis. 2d 169, 177, 517 N.W.2d 157, 160 (1994).
Section 974.06(4) requires criminal defendants to raise all postconviction claims in one motion or appeal. See Escalona-Naranjo, 185 Wis. 2d at 178, 517 N.W.2d at 161.
This procedural bar effectively prohibits "successive motions and appeals, which all could have been brought at the same time." 185 Wis. 2d at 185, 517 N.W.2d at 164.
Issues that have already been finally adjudicated, waived, or not raised in a prior postconviction motion, cannot be raised in a 974.06 motion unless there is "sufficient reason" for failing to raise them in the original, supplemental or amended motion. See 185 Wis. 2d at 181-182, 517 N.W.2d at 162; Wis. Stat. 974.06(4).
