Judge Powerless to Affect Burke Sentence

In response to a prosecution request to push Milwaukee authorities to send former Sen. Brian Burke to jail, Dane County Judge William Foust said he doesn not have the auhority to affect how Burke serves his sentence.

"I lack the jurisdiction to tell the Superintendent of the House of Corrections how to run the facility," Foust wrote.

Burke is currently serving his six-month sentence under home confinement.
