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.

Wisconsin man facing child porn charges after police search

Individuals charged with child sex crimes often feel at a complete loss because the public and media often make harsh judgments before even knowing the facts of a case. Sometimes people who used to be friends no longer are, and even family members might turn their backs after hearing of a sex crime allegation. In Wisconsin, public response to charges of Internet sex crimes tends to be no different.

Police charge Greenfield man with repeat OWI in West Allis

Witnesses say a Greenfield man's SUV crashed into a parked car recently in West Allis. Apparently, the 42-year-old continued driving after the collision, prompting a witness to flag down a police officer. The SUV driver was later arrested and charged with operating a vehicle while intoxicated. If convicted, it would be his fourth OWI since 1993, and that means he could face up to roughly seven years in prison and $20,000 in fines.

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.

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 DA declines to file child sexual assault charges

The Waukesha County district attorney's office recently declined to file charges against a Catholic priest who has been accused of sexually abusing a minor in the mid-1990s. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has placed the priest on temporary leave while an investigation is being conducted.

Suitcase search leads to drug trafficking charges

Can a drug trafficking charge in Wisconsin stick against a person who tries to board a plane with $24,000 in cash? That's what happened in the case of a 20-year-old man who planned to board a plane for San Francisco in September. When he went through security, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) technology detected abnormalities in his luggage. The officials searched his suitcase and found the cash.
