California just reformed its bail system

Should people be locked up for being unable to pay bail? More than 30 years ago, the U.S. Supreme Court held that was unconstitutional. Bail is meant to incentivize people to show up at their court dates. But as we mentioned in a recent blog post, nearly half a million Americans are currently locked up awaiting trial, simply because they can't afford bail.

Wisconsin has no plans for independent review of bad evidence

After learning that its own hair and fiber analysis methods were faulty, the FBI has tried to identify all criminal convictions that relied on such evidence. The agency has initiated a nationwide review of all cases involving such evidence before 2000, when the FBI switched to the use of mitochondrial DNA analysis instead of the older techniques.

Wisconsin man convicted in child porn case

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.

In cases in which those accused of serious crimes face mounting evidence, a meaningful strategic plan may be used as a way to obtain a lesser punishment. Sometimes, it may be to the defendant's advantage to plead guilty to an offense if he or she is offered a plea agreement that will reduce the possible penalties associated with the offense. Recently, a Milwaukee man pled guilty to Internet crime charges in court.

In Wisconsin, as in most states, a drunk driving offense carries strict penalties. Penalties for a first-time OWI may include driver's license revocation, mandatory alcohol education or treatment, fines and even time behind bars. Sadly, a drunk driving conviction can have a lasting impact on an individual's life, and, as the number of drunk driving convictions increase, the penalties become more severe.

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.

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.

The accused may not only face significant fines, court ordered treatment and prison, but also scrutiny from family, friends and neighbors.
