Drug Charges Archives

Can where drugs are sold worsen penalties for drug offenses?

For Wisconsin residents who are arrested and charged with drug offenses, there are the fundamentally serious consequences that must be considered when assessing the alternatives for lodging a defense. It can come as a surprise, however, when the penalties are worse than the person might initially have envisioned. The situation will dictate when there will be additional penalties based on the location of where the acts occurred. This is when there will be extra charges when the offenses of sale, intent to deliver or distribute controlled substances happen at or near certain locations.

Possession of drug paraphernalia and its determinative factors

Drug offenses can come in a variety of ways and it is imperative for Wisconsin residents who are arrested on drug allegations to remember that they have rights. One issue that frequently arises is when a person is arrested for possession of drug paraphernalia. Knowing how the law assesses an item and if it is being used for drugs is one of the foundational points when planning a defense. Various factors go into the determination of an item as being drug paraphernalia.

Legal protections for those facing drug charges

Drug charges can result in harsh penalties and consequences which is why it is essential for individuals who have been accused of committing a drug crime to be familiar with their criminal defense rights. Drug charges can include both state and federal charges and can include both drug possession charges or drug trafficking charges.

Woman facing drug charges after traffic stop

A 21-year-old woman is facing a raft of charges including drug possession stemming from a routine traffic stop in Wisconsin on Jan. 24. A Juneau County Sheriff's Office deputy and a Wisconsin State Trooper pulled the woman's Chevrolet Impala over near Lemonweir after allegedly observing it being driven erratically on County Road K. A caller had earlier told police that the car was blocking both lanes of County Road J as its driver attempted to make a U-turn.

Being charged with drug paraphernalia possession

Wisconsin residents who are found to be in possession of drug paraphernalia may be charged with a crime. This may be true even if that person is not in possession of any controlled substances. It is illegal in the United States to make an offer to buy or sell such items or transfer them through the mail. An individual may be charged with using paraphernalia to either distribute drugs or to ingest them.
