Helping you assert a defense against a drug charge

The state of Wisconsin takes drug crimes seriously. Thus, when individuals are accused of possessing, selling or trafficking drugs, the punishments are certain to be severe. Those accused are not only facing hefty fines and possible prison time, but that are also facing a criminal record that is sure to follow them. Because the criminal consequences of drug crimes are serious, it is important that those accused of such crimes understand what can be done to protect their rights in their defense against these allegations.

Does Dane County offer alternative drug courts?

The state of Wisconsin recognizes that sometimes there are underlying issues that cause a person to commit a criminal offense, such as drug addiction. Problem-solving courts, including drug courts, address these issues in a way that treats the offender, while still holding them responsible for the drug offense they committed. Dane County has drug courts that may be an alternative for some drug offenders.

What are your rights under the Fourth Amendment?

When law enforcement authorities come knocking on a Wisconsin resident's door and confiscate materials from their residence, people may not be aware they have certain legal rights that must be protected in the process. The most important right a person has is guaranteed under the Fourth Amendment to the US Constitution: due process of law, including lawful search and seizures.

Heroin use and sale criminal classifications

Many popular shows on television these days glamorize the drug trade by depicting it as an adventure filled lifestyle that could bring around a lot of money very quickly. It also paints the picture that the legal and social attitude toward recreational drug use such as heroin is lenient, but this is far from the truth. In Wisconsin, heroin use and possession remains illegal. In fact, it is a schedule I drug, which means it is against the law to be in possession of even a small amount of the drug.
