Bench Trial vs Jury Trial in Wisconsin

Question: What is the difference between a bench trial and a jury trial in Wisconsin? Are there pros and cons to each?

Answer: The difference between a bench trial and a jury trial is that a bench trial is to the judge, whereas a jury trial is to a jury. Sometimes if legal issues are the crux of the defense, or if there’s a thoughtful judge on the bench, bench or court trials can be very effective. All Municipal Court trials in Wisconsin are bench or court trials.
