Two Milwaukee men arrested for drug offenses

When a person has been charged with a drug offense, they must ensure that their constitutional rights were not violated. In Wisconsin, a person convicted of a drug offense faces possible jail or prison time, significant fines and mandatory education and treatment. Two Wisconsin men possibly face these consequences after their arrest in Arizona for drug possession.

Wisconsin man charged with alleged seventh OWI

Those accused and convicted of drunk driving may be subjected to life-long consequences. In Wisconsin, a defendant convicted for a first Operating While Intoxicated (OWI) offense faces stringent penalties including a fine, license revocation, mandatory alcohol assessment along with education or treatment and more. For multiple offenses, a defendant faces even greater consequences, which include those mentioned above, mandatory prison sentences and significant fines. A Wisconsin man faces these serious penalties after his arrest for his alleged seventh OWI offense.

Pharmacy technician faces various drug charges

In Milwaukee, and in most cities across the country, both state and federal laws restrict the possession of specific drugs. When people have been convicted of drug charges, such as drug possession, their personal and professional lives will likely be impacted. A drug conviction could affect the person's employment and education opportunities. The accused may not only face significant fines, court ordered treatment and prison, but also scrutiny from family, friends and neighbors.

The castle doctrine changes the rules for teen pranks

Recently, we saw Wisconsin's castle doctrine law applied for the first time in a case in Slinger. A young man, apparently running from police during the breakup of an underage drinking party, hid in the porch of the next-door neighbor. The neighbor, reportedly frightened by the noises and presence of a stranger, confronted the young man and shot him. Emergency help arrived in response to the homeowner's call, but the young man died of the single wound.

Search of Green Bay home leads to arrests related to death

A homicide charge against a person is one of the most severe in criminal law. To be arrested for homicide, or any other criminal charge, the police must have probable cause, a legal requirement of sufficient reason from the facts and circumstances of the situation, that an individual has committed the crime. In general, the police must have probable cause to obtain a search warrant before searching for evidence.

4 men in Milwaukee face second-degree sexual assault charges

When a person has been charged with or convicted of sexual assault, the accused may be presented with enduring consequences. If the person has been convicted of sexual assault, the person's private information is placed on public registers. This information is on full display to potential employers, which makes it extremely difficult to find a job. Not only may the person struggle in finding a job, the person will likely face prejudice from the community they choose to reside in.
