Possession or Delivery of Drugs
Wisconsin penalizes all kinds of behavior involving controlled substances, from possession to cultivation to distribution. Generally, possession of most drugs is a misdemeanor for a first offense, punishable by up to 6 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Subsequent offenses could result in up to 3.5 years in prison.
The penalties are harsher for more serious offenses, such as selling drugs or possessing drugs with the intent to sell. Sale and distribution are felonies, and the sentencing range will depend on the amount of drugs involved. At the very least, a defendant could face up to 3.5 years in jail and $10,000 in fines, though the penalties could escalate to 15 years in jail and $50,000 in fines.
Unfortunately, more and more people are faced with drug charges for prescription fraud. We are sympathetic to the sensitive situations that place you in a position of being accused of this crime. If you were recently charged with prescription fraud, you need an experienced attorney who can help you to resolve your case quickly and discreetly. We have handled many of these types of cases successfully and can craft a unique defense for you today.
Search and Seizure
We are also dedicated to fighting to protect your rights by getting charges reduced or dismissed altogether. Drug offenses often involve law enforcement going into a defendant’s home, stopping them on the street, or searching them. However, there is a specific protocol for when law enforcement is allowed to search you. Improper behavior can lead to the suppression of evidence or even the complete dismissal of your case. We can investigate how law enforcement acquired the evidence against you and protect your rights against unlawful search and seizure.
Whatever drug accusation you are facing, Ritter & Kremer Law can protect your rights and help you minimize the consequences. Hiring an experienced defense attorney could make the difference between years of incarceration and a shorter period behind bars.
