In Milwaukee and elsewhere, Internet crimes are taken seriously and carry significant penalties. Defendants charged with an Internet offense like possession and distribution of child pornography face the same penalties as individuals who commit sex crimes unrelated to the Internet. Defendants should be aware of the possible defenses that may apply to their case; certain defenses may reduce penalties associated with an Internet crime. Recently, a Milwaukee man faces severe penalties after being charged with possession of child pornography.
We all make mistakes. Sometimes, these mistakes have consequences that may affect not only our lives, but also the lives of our family and friends. In Wisconsin, homicide is one of the most serious criminal offenses and carries significant penalties. A Wisconsin student may be charged with this serious offense after a man was found dead in the student's dorm room.
Access to the Internet is becoming easier every day, leading to widespread use of many websites. This access has led to greater prosecution of Internet crimes, such as cyberstalking, sexual exploitation of a child and the possession and distribution of child pornography. Recently, a Wisconsin man was convicted of child pornography. He now faces potentially severe penalties.
In Milwaukee and elsewhere, sexual offenses are severely punished. An appeal of any sentence given on criminal sexual charges may be beneficial in reducing penalties for those who have received a sentence with significant penalties, which undoubtedly will affect the defendant's life, and the lives of their loved ones, in the present and the future. Recently, a Wisconsin appeals court ordered a new trial for a man accused of sexual assault, which shows that mistakes are sometimes made during trial that led to the conviction of individuals for serious sex crimes and other criminal offenses.
