Drug-Related Charges In Wisconsin
Following an arrest for a drug crime, you may feel anxious and unsure of what to do next. You need experienced legal representation to guide you through the hurdles of the criminal justice system. The attorneys at Adolph Legal in Green Bay can help you fight the charges while protecting your future.
Charges related to drugs and controlled substances can range from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on the substance, the amount and any prior offenses. Consequences are serious and often include steep fines and potential jail time.
We can help you fight drug-related charges including:
- Prescription drug crimes
- Drugged driving
Deferred Agreement And Deferred Acceptance
Prosecutors tend to prefer traditional forms of punishment for drug charges, but skilled negotiation from our attorneys could help you avoid jail. Whenever possible we advocate for alternative sentencing methods, probation and treatment options for those struggling with addiction and facing drug-related charges.
Wisconsin allows a person facing a criminal charge to enter into a court agreement to fulfill case specific obligations in exchange for a reduction in charges or a dismissal. To be eligible, you must have a limited criminal record, accept responsibility for the offense and be willing to sign either a Deferred Prosecution Agreement or a Deferred Acceptance of a Guilty Plea Agreement. Your obligations and the time frame in which to complete them are case specific, but common requirements include participation in educational classes, community service work and attending counseling.
