State v. Carter

In State v. Carter, 208 Wis. 2d 142, 156, 560 N.W.2d 256 (1997), the Court held that a circuit court should have available to it all information relevant to determining the appropriate sentence. See id. at 146. The role of the sentencing court is the same whether the proceeding is an initial sentencing or a re-sentencing, and therefore the court must have accurate, complete and current information. See id. at 157. Information concerning events that occurred after the initial sentence is relevant and the court can properly consider it at re-sentencing. See Carter, 208 Wis. 2d at 157-58.
