Two Wisconsin residents suspected of drug crimes following search

Wisconsin police say they had a search warrant when they went rummaging through a private residence on a recent Wednesday. After their unexpected visit, which they reported was part of an ongoing investigation, they charged two people with drug crimes and took them both into custody. One defendant is a 24-year-old man, the other, a 23-year-old woman.

Police say the discovered drugs worth nearly $30,000 inside the home. They also claim to have seized $8,000 in cash and a firearm. The accusations did not stop there, however, as authorities also claim they found more than 80 grams of cocaine and more than a pound of methamphetamine as well.

Both residents were charged with possession with intent to deliver; however, those charges were listed as tentative and may change. It will likely be a long, hard road ahead in court for both defendants. Charges of this nature typically carry very severe penalties under conviction.

Wisconsin police saying something is so doesn't make it so. Prosecutors will have to prove that the two people charged with drug crimes are guilty. If they are able to present strong defenses in court, they may be able to avoid conviction altogether or at least lessen the severity of their outcomes. Most people facing similar situations rely on experienced defense attorneys to do their talking for them in court, as aggressive representation is often key to obtaining the court's favor. Anyone currently facing drug charges may seek assistance by requesting a meeting with a criminal law attorney in the area.
