Drug issues still plaguing Outgamie, greater Lake Winnebago area

In spite of local, state and federal authorities increasing their efforts in recent years, drug abuse, possession, trafficking and use cases involving opiates, methamphetamine, heroin and marijuana are still plaguing the greater Lake Winnebago area of our state. A spate of recent high-profile arrests (particularly those involving an Oshkosh man accused of manufacturing meth in a local hotel room and a different Oshkosh man facing charges relating to 75 pounds of marijuana housed in an RV at a Winnebago County storage facility) has put the issue of Wisconsin drug crimes in the public eye once again.

Wisconsin enhances penalties for repeat drunk drivers

Did you know that Wisconsin's impaired driving laws recently changed? Governor Scott Walker signed Act 371 into law, which aims to combat drunk driving in the state. The law enhances penalties for impaired operation -- specifically in relation to repeat drunk driving offenses.

Save the Last Dance

Have you ever been the victim of bullying? If you have, you know how difficult it can be for a growing individual -- especially during the critical transition from adolescence to adulthood.

Drunk driving: Have we opened Pandora's Box?

Have you or a friend ever been arrested for drunk driving? Many drivers have had one slipup with the law. You do not have to be an alcoholic or avid drinker to get charged with OWI. Sometimes, you do not drink much at all, and one glass of wine leads you into a situation you did not realize was possible. You can have some sympathy for one-time drunk driving offenders. Life happens.

Want to erase a case from your criminal record?

When a judge expunges or "erases" a Wisconsin criminal court record, this means the court is essentially "sealing" a case file and no one is permitted to access the file, save a few limited situations where a court order is involved. In such cases, if someone inquires about a sealed criminal case, the court must note that no information is available. In fact, searching for a defendant's name or case number will not even return case information on the Wisconsin Circuit Court Access website.
