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.

Wales woman accused of theft at Waukesha nursing home

The fact that criminal charges are filed does not necessarily mean the accused person is guilty. Sometimes a misunderstanding leads to the need for a criminal defense, but that doesn't stop people -- sometimes even family and friends -- from siding with police.

Wisconsin man charged in 1989 sexual assault

DNA is widely used as evidence in criminal trials. In Wisconsin and across the country, this DNA evidence can be used in two ways: either to link an individual to a crime, or to prove his or her innocence. While DNA testing can be accurate, there are times when this evidence should be challenged. A man in Wisconsin is currently struggling with this very battle, as he has been accused of a crime that occurred more than 20 years ago. It was alleged that in 1989 he sexually assaulted a 12-year-old girl.

Wisconsin man accused of strangling woman, resisting officers

Our readers in Waukesha may recall a previous post discussing the unfortunate situation of criminal charges resulting from domestic disputes. Although emotions can run high in the home, it is important to remember that just because a person is accused of a crime does not necessarily mean that person is guilty, even when the charges stem from the claims of a family member or friend. The prosecution is nonetheless obliged to hold up its end of the legal bargain by bearing the burden of proof.

Son charged with theft of mother's jewelry in Sheboygan County

Though they probably never expected to, sometimes families in Wisconsin have to confront the daunting prospect of criminal charges. In some cases, one family member might even accuse another of a crime, but that doesn't mean the whole family isn't affected by the painful ordeal. Moreover, an allegation is something quite different from proof of guilt.

Police ruse leads to Internet crime charge for Milwaukee man

In efforts to file criminal charges, sometimes police in Wisconsin will employ tricky tactics. That is exactly what happened in Waukesha County recently when a police officer pretended online to be a 15-year-old girl. Now a 44-year-old Milwaukee man has been charged with Internet crimes.

Release of Wisconsin sex offender delayed after housing denied

State law in Wisconsin stipulates that any convicted sex offender, after serving a prison sentence, will be released to the county where the alleged sex offense occurred. In such cases, what often happens is that a member of the local community will agree to provide a place of lodging for the released individual. However, sometimes the contract between the community member and the Department of Corrections falls through, resulting in a postponement of the sex offender's release.

Waukesha court offers drug treatment while deferring prosecution

As Wisconsin residents know, drug use sometimes has the power to cause a person's life to spiral out of control. Nationwide treatment programs provide assistance to people struggling with addiction, and now the legal system in Waukesha County has climbed aboard. For people who find themselves in legal situations they never could have imagined being in, a Waukesha County drug treatment court is offering an alternative.
