Chrystul Kizer Wins Appeal: Sex-Trafficking Can Be Used As Defense For Murder

Chrystul Kizer

Chrystul Kizer is accused of 1st degree murder, for killing Randall Volar III. She says he was trafficking her for sex. He was being investigated at the time for serious crimes including sexual assault of children and child porn. The Kenosha DA did not charge him with a crime. We told you how Mike Graveley’s office was responsible, in part for Volar’s death by dragging its feet with the investigation after Kenosha Police recommended many felonies.

This morning, June 2, 2021, the Wisconsin Court of Appeals ruled that Chrystul Kizer can mount an affirmative defense. That is, she can admit to the murder of Randall Volar and maintain that she did it because she was trafficked by him. The court said in part:

“We granted leave to appeal the order, and because we conclude the circuit court (Judge David Wilk) erred in its interpretation of § 939.46(1m), we reverse.”

and later:

“Thus, as far as the first-degree intentional homicide charge against Kizer is concerned, if the § 939.46(1m) affirmative defense is deemed applicable to that charge, it would, if successful, act as a complete defense and not simply mitigate the charge to second-degree intentional homicide.”

That’s exactly what David Wilk tried to do in an oral/written ruling from this past Monday. Lets begin with Judge WIlk’s beginning. Wilke attended Hamline University School

  1. I still can not get over the fact that this dangerous sexual predator was released without requiring any bond. The DA had enough evidence to charge at least one felony while the investigation continued. This happens all the time and is certainly not uncommon. Remember the police had videos with this piece of garbage having sex with underaged black girls. I know that some people will lash out at me for saying this, but if this suspect was a black guy who was was having sex with underaged white girls, yes he would be locked up, and rightfully so. It should also work the other way. It might be hard for some people to understand, but this guy was not immediately charged because he was white and his victims were black.

  2. Gravely should of charged. But if you know the case she still pre meditated this murder. She may or wanted revenge, why else not talk on her first arrest and plan a killing. I appreciate the Kenosha county eye. But facts are facts. She planned it with the assistance of her boyfriend after she solicited herself

    1. Exactly….she was a hooker. She wasn’t some innocent kidnapped child. Hopefully she goes away to prison and then, again, we have killed two shitty birds with one stone.

  3. Deranged leadership from the state courts to the county DA. Worst Governor Ever(s) should be charged with murder for his dereliction of duty to control the riots last summer. Gravely too for his willful incompetence in the matters related to this case. Gravely, a Marxist BLM sympathizer, occupies the position of Kenosha County DA….What an absolute bunch of deranged and reprobate individuals at the helm.

  4. Considering the facts of the case, the Court of Appeals ruling by the three judge panel of Paul F Reilly, Mark D.Grundrum, and Jeff Davis is beyond logic and to the point of absurd. We have disorder in the 2nd. District Circus Court of Appeals overseen by Chief Judge Lisa Neubauer.

  5. White Adult Man. Support. Even from the grave. Black child. Vilified for choosing her life instead of the life of her tormentor/pimp/victim. Sex trafficking. Pedophile videographer. Felony crimes. No jail time. No charges filed. Emotional manipulation and physical abuse. Mental health issues. Murder. Survivor faced with lifelong jail time. Black female. Disrespected, neglected and unprotected. This is America. Land of the brave. Home of the free.
