Is a plea bargain right for my violent crimes charge?

An arrest can spark a series of events that may lead defendants to feel as if their future is no longer in their control. Although there may be certain things out of a person's hands, most Wisconsin defendants have more options at their disposal than they realize. Even if facing a violent crimes charge, individuals may have the option to enter into a plea bargain, which can sometimes minimize the impact of the situation.

Day begins with accusations of drug crimes in Wisconsin

Police were inside the home of two people in Wisconsin on a recent Sunday morning. Sundays are often associated with rest and relaxation, church services and other family traditions. However, this particular Sunday was anything but enjoyable for the couple in question, who are now facing charges regarding suspected drug crimes. One can only imagine the sudden shock of unexpectedly finding police officers bursting into one's home.

Theft, robbery and burglary charges

Despite the fact that the public often uses theft, robbery and burglary interchangeably in conversation, these are distinctly different charges, and do not mean the same thing in the eyes of the court. If you or someone you know faces charges related to one or more of these crimes, you should examine your legal options very closely, to make sure that you do not miss out on any important defense opportunities.

Wrong-way drivers cause of many Wisconsin motor vehicle accidents

One might not think there would be a lot of traffic before 4 a.m. on Wisconsin roadways. However, many long-distance travelers prefer driving through the night because there tends to be less traffic. There may also be someone commuting to work before dawn, as well as a few late-night partygoers who may finally be heading home. In short, no matter what time of day or night it is, there are bound to cars on the road, and where there are cars, there are risks for motor vehicle accidents

When criminal law intersects with motor vehicle accidents

Wisconsin police officers often later claim they had reasonable cause to engage in a vehicle pursuit when one or more parties allegedly left the scene of crime or exhibited some other behavior while driving that caught their attention. The problem is that some police chases end in motor vehicle accidents, sometimes with fatal results. This is evident in a recent tragedy that took place when law enforcement officers tried to catch up with a car they claim was traveling more than 90 mph.  

Drug charges may easily cost you your job

A recent study found that many workplaces see increasing rates of drug use by employees. This is after years of prevention efforts intended to removed drug use from professional environments. While some employers see this as an expected result of changing attitudes about some drugs at the national level, e.g., marijuana, other employers may increase their efforts to eliminate drug use in the workplace with more frequent drug testing and harsher penalties.

Narcotics officers search Wisconsin home, suspect drug crimes

A sheriff's department in Wisconsin recently got a call requesting police assistance at a particular residence. Authorities say they were told some type of altercation was occurring that may have something to do with illegal drug activities. The department dispatched a patrol car to the scene, which ultimately led authorities to suspect that drug crimes were being committed.
