Jennifer Dorow’s interesting practice


Everyone dislikes defense attorneys until they need one. However, Jennifer Dorow, Governor Scott Walker’s pick for the second branch of the Circuit Court of Waukesha County, has an interesting practice. She defends sexual predators of children.

Our lawyers have an impressive track record: attorney Matthew Huppertz has argued hundreds of cases in front of Wisconsin’s judges and juries, including five cases before the Wisconsin Supreme Court. Attorney Jennifer Dorow is a former Waukesha County Prosecutor who has firsthand knowledge about how prosecutors handle child sex abuse cases. Both lawyers have been AV Rated* under Martindale-Hubbell’s Peer Review Rating Process. Attorney Mark Powers is also a former prosecutor for Waukesha County with extensive criminal defense experience.

We defend against child sex crime accusations involving:

  • Child pornography
  • Child solicitation, including Internet solicitation of a minor
  • Child enticement
  • Statutory rape
  • Sexual assault of a minor
  • Sexual exploitation of a minor
  • Prostitution and Internet stings

I think I’m on safe ground saying voters generally prefer candidates that try to figure out how to lock up sexual predators, not let them loose. Given that this was an issue in the Stilling/Carter race, I wonder how forgiving Waukesha voters will be the first time Dorow is running in an election, especially with cases like this one:

Terrence Greenwald, 57, had been facing dozens of years in prison if he had been convicted of six felony sex crimes.

But under the plea agreement, all the charges were reduced to misdemeanors.

Greenwald’s attorney is expected to ask for a county jail sentence and probation.

The victims’ relatives are outraged by the deal. The children Greenwald is accused of sexually assaulting are relatives of his – a boy and a girl.

The children’s grandfather could barely contain himself in court. “And him being a retired deputy, at the Waukesha County Sheriff’s department, it’s outrageous. That guy should be taken out in the back and just pounded to a pulp,” the grandfather said.

Greenwald pleaded “no contest” to four counts of sexual assault and two counts of exposing his genitals to a child.

The deal allows the retired deputy to avoid a trial.

“It’s a fabulous offer,” Greenwald’s attorney, Jennifer Dorow, explained. “It avoids felony convictions, it avoids prison.”

According to the criminal complaint, the abuse started when the children were 6 and 8 and continued over a period of nearly 11 years.

The kids finally told their mother last year. She too is outraged by the deal. “It takes considerable restraint, and only because of my job and my kids and the fact that I don’t want to go to jail, I haven’t done anything,” she said.
