2 people in Wisconsin suspected of drug crimes

Wisconsin police sometimes show up at private residences, unannounced. These surprise visits often mean that someone who lives at the address or is thought to be visiting is suspected of drug crimes. A recent incident occurred on a Friday at approximately 3 p.m., which ended with two people going to jail.

The officers that knocked on the door reportedly had a warrant to search the home. In this state and all others, if police show a valid home search warrant, they must be allowed entry. A person can request to see a warrant before allowing police access to his or her residence. In this case, police conducted a search of the residence, claiming that they found THC oil, loaded firearms, ecstasy pills and miscellaneous drug paraphernalia.

A 43-year-old woman and 37-year-old man were taken into custody. They face a string of felony charges, including child neglect, unlawful possession of a firearm and numerous drug-related charges. A male of minor age was also charged with drug crimes but was later released to a parent.

If a Wisconsin resident answers his or her door to a police officer, it is critical that he or she know his or her rights and how to protect them. Penalties for convictions of felony drug crimes are often severe, which is why most defendants hire experienced criminal defense attorneys to try to help them mitigate their circumstances. An attorney can assess an individual case and build as strong a defense as possible based on various factors, such as lack of evidence, possible personal rights violations and/or other issues.
