Charges of maintaining a drug place in Wisconsin

Certain allegations can put the owner of a property in a very serious situation. Among these are accusations of drug activity occurring on their property. Such allegations could leave a property owner facing drug charges, such as the charge of maintaining a drug place.

State law makes it a Class I felony crime to maintain or keep, knowingly, a structure or place that is used for any of the following:

  • Keeping drugs.
  • Manufacturing drugs.
  • Delivering drugs.
  • The purpose of using drugs by drug users.

Now, as can be seen from the elements of this crime, the above type of drug activities occurring in a structure or place a person owns doesn't necessarily mean the owner has committed the crime of maintaining a drug place. They would also have to have met the other requirements of the crime, such as the knowledge requirement.

So, a variety of different types of evidence can matter quite a bit in cases involving allegations of this drug crime beyond just types touching on what happened in a given structure or place, such as evidence regarding what the person accused of maintaining a drug dwelling knew. Different sorts of evidence can raise different sorts of issues in criminal cases. Skilled defense attorneys can help property owners here in Wisconsin who have been accused of maintaining a drug place understand what the evidence that has been brought forward in their case means for what the big issues in their case are and what kind of defense options they have.
