STATE OF WISCONSIN, Plaintiff, vs. DIANNA M. SIVENY, Case No. 2013CF000104


This is not the State’s first motion to dismiss. The defense has objected and had to file numerous motions with this court over discovery violations, speedy trial demands and violations, and problems with witnesses and evidence. Defendant has either been held in pre-trial confinement, or released on bond with GPS, daily check ins, and significant travel restrictions. She has had this case looming for years, and been told by the lead detective that he is going to incarcerate her one year at a time if he has to. This is also not the first time the substantial battery charge has been filed and dismissed. Only after obtaining a bail jumping conviction for mother-daughter contact did the state dismiss the last round of charges. The State then refiled the current charges and kept Siveny in pre-trial confinement for 14 months before this court was forced to let her go for the State’s Speedy Trial and Brady violations.
