A recent Monday morning was anything but peaceful for a man and woman who live together in Wisconsin. At approximately 10 a.m., police came to their home and began searching for drugs. They brought along a K-9 unit to help them. The incident resulted in both adults facing charges for drug crimes.
Authorities didn’t say where they got their information that the two residents were selling crystal methamphetamine, only that they had reason to believe they were. Once they made their way through the home, they claim to have seized methamphetamine and marijuana, as well as another powdery substance they believe might be an illegal drug. Authorities also say they grabbed several digital scales, cell phones, drug paraphernalia and cash from the residence.
Other people were reportedly occupying the house who were also allegedly found in possession of illegal drugs. They apparently told the officers they purchased the drugs from the man and woman who live there. The 32-year-old man and 30-year-old woman were taken to a county jail. They are formally charged with a slew of drug crimes, including possession of a schedule II narcotic.
Such crimes generally carry severe penalties under conviction in Wisconsin. Avoiding conviction is often difficult, as prosecutors tend to be aggressive in their quests to sway the court in their favor in such situations. Defendants may be able to mitigate their own circumstances by enlisting the help of highly experienced criminal defense attorneys who know how to counter any tactics and strategies employed by the prosecution. Anyone currently facing charges in this state for drug crimes can request a meeting with a defense attorney in the area.
