Woman to be extradited also charged with drug crimes

A recent Tuesday didn't go so well for a woman in Wisconsin. Several law enforcement officers showed up at her residence, and from there, everything went downhill. The woman is now facing charges for drug crimes, but her problems don't end there.

Some of the officials that arrived at the woman's home were part of a narcotics task force. The purpose of the visit was to conduct a search. Officers say they found all sorts of drugs inside the house, including marijuana and fentanyl, as well as cannabis oil and drug-laden gummies. The sheriff's department reported that three firearms and ammunition were also seized from the residence.

The 25-year-old woman was arrested for suspected drug crimes, but she also had an extradition warrant from California. Situations like this one often get a lot worse before they get better. To avoid maximum negative repercussions, many people choose to rely on aggressive legal representation.

There are many things an experienced Wisconsin attorney can to do help people facing similar situations in this state mitigate their circumstances. Prosecutors tend to come down hard on defendants accused of drug crimes. Of course, a defendant's main goal is always to try to avoid conviction; however, even if that's not possible, an attorney can try to convince the court to hand down a lighter sentence than permitted under state law. A logical first step to take for a person accused of serious criminal charges is to begin building a strong defense. He or she can do so by requesting a meeting with a criminal defense attorney.
