Criminal offenses involving children are severely punished in Milwaukee and elsewhere. Some of these crimes may involve police Internet sting operations which target defendants who would not have possessed child pornography had it not been for these circumstances. For some defendants facing an Internet criminal offense, entrapment may be a viable defense. Recently, a Wisconsin county sheriff's deputy assisted in arresting a man for possession of child pornography.
Being accused of any criminal offense should not be taken lightly. This is especially true for cases in which the defendant is accused of a sexual criminal offense, such as sexual assault. Sex crime convictions carry stiff penalties in Wisconsin. Recently, a teenager has been accused of sexually assaulting another teenager.
Everyone has made decisions that have impacted their futures. However, some of these decisions may have negative consequences that may not be as easily visible in the present time. For example, making the decision to drive under the influence may mean not only having to spend the night in jail, but also future consequences including permanent criminal record and difficulty in finding future employment. Unfortunately, a man arrested for drunk driving may face these serious penalties.
Being accused of a criminal offense should not ever be taken lightly. An individual's reputation and his or her family's status in the community may be harmed even if a defendant is not convicted. It is important that when a defendant is accused of a serious criminal offense, such as child sexual assault, a strategic defense plan is developed to reduce possible penalties. Recently, a Wisconsin man was accused of several serious sex crimes.
