Many different things can end up having a big impact in cases in which a person is facing charges of distributing drugs here in Wisconsin. This includes where the alleged drug distribution is alleged to have occurred. This is because, here in Wisconsin, distributing drugs in certain locations can lead to a person facing a higher max sentence than would typically be available for the offense of drug distribution.
Specifically, state law specifies certain locations that distributing drugs in can trigger an option for courts to up the max sentence for the distribution by up to five years. Now, this rule doesn’t cover the distribution of all types of drugs, but rather just covers certain specified drugs. A couple of examples of drugs that are covered by the rule are heroin and cocaine.
