MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The Wisconsin Supreme Court reinstated a sexual assault conviction Tuesday morning against a Milwaukee man.
Muhammad Sarfraz said his jury should have been allowed to hear that he had a previous sexual relationship with the victim.
A state appeals court said the jury might not have convicted Sarfraz, had they known the full history of his relationship with the woman. But the Supreme Court disagreed, and it upheld Sarfraz's ten-year prison sentence handed down in 2011.
The justices said the evidence was properly excluded under a shield law for sexual assault victims.
