13-year-old Madison daycare volunteer accused of sexual abuse

It is hard to understand why anyone would harm a baby or child. It is especially concerning when a young teenager is responsible for committing a sex crime. Some Wisconsin residents believe it may be tied to their upbringing, as young children and teenagers are often a product of their environment. Leading research shows that children who have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused, have a greater tendency to display abusive behavior as well.

WI man issued concealed weapon permit despite domestic violence charge

Countless studies show that domestic violence offenders who possess a firearm are likely to use it during a heated dispute. Federal law prohibits anyone who has been convicted of a misdemeanor domestic violence offense or who has a restraining order against them from possessing a gun. This law specifies that using any type of physical force against another person in a domestic relationship is an act of violence. In addition to the federal law, Wisconsin has its own state laws regarding domestic violence.

BAC retrograde calculation in DUI conviction is 'inherently unreliable'

Many Wisconsin residents enjoy having a few drinks with dinner or when going out for the evening. While some people may feel extremely intoxicated after having a few drinks, others may be somewhat more tolerant to alcohol. Each person is unique in their ability to process and eliminate alcohol from the body. Factors, including age, body mass index and the amount of food the person has consumed, also play a large role in determining the amount of time it takes for the alcohol to move through a person’s system. Anyone who chooses to drive after drinking, however, may face DUI charges in Wisconsin.

Man with cancer faces felony charges for medicating with marijuana

While some states have enacted legislation to legalize marijuana use for certain medical conditions, other states still consider the drug illegal. Currently, 23 states along with Washington D.C. have legalized the plant for the medical treatment of certain diseases. Earlier this year, Wisconsin and Iowa, along with a small list of other states, approved a bill allowing limited legal marijuana use for small children who suffer from seizures. People who are using cannabis to treat other medical conditions, however, may face drug charges for illegal possession of the drug.

False rape accusations can wreak havoc on people's lives

Although there are two sides to every story, when someone claims to have been raped or sexually assaulted, it may be difficult to disprove those allegations. There have multiple legal cases throughout the years involving Wisconsin men and women who have falsely accused another person of a sex crime, simply to seek revenge or inflict punishment on someone. Not only do these accusations hurt the life and reputation of the innocent person who is accused of a crime, but it can create disbelief in subsequent outcries of rape in the future.

Teen said to endanger juvenile inmates held in solitary confinement

The teenage brain is often considered a mystery. Multiple studies prove that while the brain is continually developing throughout adolescence and into young adulthood, some areas of the brain are quicker to develop than others. Teenagers who fall victim to abuse while growing up have extended complications involving neurological development. Babies and children who are loved and nurtured tend to develop strong emotional and empathetic neurological pathways, while abused children develop a lack of empathy to help them cope with their negative surroundings. Wisconsin psychologists acknowledge that the extent of this brain damage varies depending on the type of abuse inflicted and the duration of the abuse. Abused individuals have an increased risk of committing juvenile crimes.

Case involving vehicular manslaughter while intoxicated lacks evidence

When police officers detain someone on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, they often administer a Breathalyzer test or field sobriety test to the suspect on site. These tests help Wisconsin officers determine whether or not the suspect is driving with a blood alcohol concentration that is over the legal limit. If the proper protocol is not followed, or if the officers do not find enough evidence to hold the driver on DUI charges, they are often forced to let them go. When the DUI crime involves the death of another driver, evidence becomes even more crucial in the case.

Evansville man robs pharmacy while out on bail for armed robbery

There is no question that abusive drug use has a substantial impact on many people’s lives. Countless studies have found that drug addiction is indeed a disease, and can dramatically alter normal brain functioning. In the United States, prescription drug abuse outnumbers abuse of illegal drugs, such as cocaine, heroin and meth. While some addicts obtain prescriptions from legal professionals to feed their compulsive habits, others consort to theft as a way to obtain prescription drugs.

18-year-old Mukwonago linebacker faces prison time for rape

The definition of a relationship can be interpreted differently from person to person. While some relationships are based on an emotional connection, others can be identified as purely sexual in nature. Regardless of a past connection, mixed signals and miscommunication can lead to disastrous events.
