Police are not perfect: Mistakes may impact DUI cases

The idea of potentially facing serious consequences due to having criminal charges brought against you may immediately send you into an anxious frenzy. Throughout your life, you may have always tried to walk the straight-and-narrow path, but of course, everyone makes mistakes, often when they do not realize it. If an officer believes you consumed too much alcohol before driving, you could end up facing allegations of DUI.

What drug schedules mean for your case

Wisconsin criminal defendants know that when they are facing criminal charges of any kind, their future and their freedom is on the line. This is especially true for people facing drug charges. There are various types of drug charges, and if you face any type of criminal charge related to drug use, possession, manufacturing or trafficking, you would be wise to act quickly to protect your interests.

Make sure you've got your Wisconsin marijuana facts straight

Has someone told you marijuana is now legal in Wisconsin? If so, unless you're already armed with the facts, this type of misguided statement could land you in a lot to trouble with the law. Currently, seven states, plus the District of Columbia, have passed laws regarding recreationally smoking marijuana. Wisconsin is not one of these states. Also, at the federal level, all possession, manufacturing, selling, delivering and use of marijuana remains illegal, which can lead to confusion in individual states where laws conflict.

What you may not know about drunk driving in Wisconsin

Drunk driving is a serious crime, and like most states, Wisconsin laws bring steep penalties for individuals who choose to drink and drive. You may know that if convicted, a DUI or OWI can result in loss of driving privileges, time behind bars and more. However, that is not all you need to know about this type of criminal offense and its associated penalties.
