In United States v. Lockett, 782 F.3d 349 (7th Cir. 2015), Kristen successfully argued before the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals that Mr. Lockett’s prior convictions did not qualify under the Armed Career Criminal Act (ACCA) because the Government failed to provide any evidence that Mr. Lockett was subject to Illinois’ recidivist enhancement. Mr. Lockett was originally sentenced to the mandatory fifteen-year minimum under the ACCA. In August 2015, he was released from prison for time served.

Kristen has successfully represented clients before the Wisconsin Department of Safety and Professional Services, the Wisconsin Department of Children and Families, the Wisconsin Department of Hearings and Appeals, Wisconsin State Courts and the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. Kristen has also volunteered with Community Advocates in Milwaukee as a Visiting Legal Fellow.
