Milwaukee Drug Crime Lawyer
Wisconsin Drug Laws & Penalties
A drug crime may be defined as the possession, distribution, sale, cultivation, manufacture, transportation, importation, or trafficking of illegal drugs or controlled substances, such as marijuana, cocaine, heroin, crack, LSD, methamphetamine, steroids, inhalants, and other narcotics. Drug crimes also include the unauthorized obtainment of prescription drugs such as Vicodin, OxyContin, and others.
The penalties for these crimes include imprisonment, fines, probation, community service, and mandatory attendance in drug counseling programs. Drug crimes may be prosecuted as state or federal crimes, although prosecutors for both may determine which agency will handle the case. A drug crime may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the nature of the offense. The court will look at the amount of drugs found in your possession, the type of drugs involved, and whether minors were involved or not.
If you are being investigated or you have been arrested for drug charges, your future is at stake. These charges should not be taken lightly and they should be dealt with in an aggressive and proactive manner. By consulting with me, you will gain an understanding of the charges and sentencing you may face, what needs to be done to create an effective criminal defense, and what to expect throughout the legal process. I also may be able to negotiate down the formal charges against you or get alternative sentencing, such as drug treatment or probation as opposed to any jail time.
