Assembly votes to remove names from state court Web site

Email

A state Assembly committee has voted to remove the names of those not convicted from the state court system's Web site.

The Corrections and Courts panel voted 9-2 Thursday to delete cases where the defendants were found innocent or their charges were dropped.

Robin Vos, R-Racine, proposed the measure, saying employers find it too easy to assume those people are guilty just because their charges are online for all to see.
