There is no question that much of Wisconsin and most other states throughout the country are experiencing a serious opioid crisis.

In 2013, a Wisconsin woman was reported missing. To date, she has still not been found.

While the Fourth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution protects those in such situations from unlawful searches or seizures and the Fifth Amendment protects the right to remain silent without legal representation, it is definitely true that anything a suspect says or does during a traffic stop or arrest can later be used by prosecutors to incriminate the person if charges are filed.

As in all other states, violent crimes sometimes occur in Wisconsin. In fact, on a recent Monday, a man was arrested and charged with stabbing another man. The supposed crime took place in the wee hours after midnight at an apartment. The 42-year-old victim was listed in serious condition and was transported to a hospital for emergency surgery. When prosecutors suspect violent crimes, they are often quite aggressive in their quests to secure convictions.
