Wisconsin Woman Receives A Very Unexpected Christmas Present

We have previously posted that illegal drugs are a serious matter. Wisconsin residents who are caught buying, selling, or possessing drugs are subject to stiff drug charges. But even though our blog tries to focus on the serious criminal defense issues which affect defendants' lives, we sometimes find lighter stories which are too interesting to avoid sharing. This is one such story.

Even Legal Drugs Can Result In A DUI Charge

Because most DUI cases involve alcohol, we commonly refer to driving under the influence as "drunk driving." While all drunk drivers are under the influence, not all DUI arrests are caused by alcohol. Other mood-altering drugs such as marijuana, cocaine, and amphetamines can seriously impair your ability to drive. In addition to a DUI charge, users of these illegal drugs also face criminal charges for possession.

Secure Communities Program May Be A Violation Of Justice

The Wisconsin Department of Justice recently signed an agreement that could threaten the safety of illegal immigrants in the state. Wisconsin is now enrolled in a federal program called Secure Communities. Under this program, the state will collect fingerprint records from local arrests and turn them over to the FBI as well as the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

New Court System Offers Humane Solution For Struggling Veterans

It is unfortunately common to see veterans returning from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan who have a difficult time readjusting to civilian life. These brave men and women who fought so fiercely for our country now feel out of place at home. What's worse, many returning vets are in need of treatment for post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), alcohol addiction, or other mental afflictions.

A Brief Lesson On Search and Seizure Laws

Everyone has heard terms like "search warrant" and "probable cause" when hearing about collection of evidence. But unless you have studied the law you may not be clear on what these terms mean. Today I'd like to offer a few brief explanations about the laws to help everyone understand them better. Then I'd like to share a recent Wisconsin Supreme Court ruling which relates to these laws.

Milwaukee Area Man Faces Child Pornography Charges

Possession of child pornography and other internet sex crimes carry serious penalties, even for someone as young as 18. A Jackson County man has just been arrested and is facing 15 felony charges including possession of child pornography, child sexploitation, and child sex crimes involving a computer.

Racial Profiling Could Be A Factor In Traffic Stops

Wisconsin may have a race problem when it comes to law enforcement. African Americans account for 43 percent Wisconsin's prison population but they represent only 6 percent of the state's total population. This disproportionate statistic has caused officials to take a closer look in order to determine if racial profiling is significant problem in law enforcement.
