2 Wisconsin rape cases, same alleged teen victim

Many Milwaukee parents would find it highly inappropriate for an adult camp counselor to share the same bunk with a young camper under any circumstances. With or without the commission of a sex crime, the counselor's legal position could be precarious simply for sharing the same intimate space as a minor.

Prosecution of illegal sales of wildlife resources

Milwaukee residents may make purchasing decisions based upon information about a product's source. For instance, some consumers refuse to buy genetically modified foods or clothing manufactured in countries where sweatshops are prevalent. Individuals and companies must obtain, manufacture and sell plant and animal resources legally.

What is phishing?

The crime's gentle cousin is associated with a quiet stream-side hobby but there are similarities. In both instances, bait is used to fool a target into giving up something of value. A fish snaps at a worm and loses a life just as email recipients are lured into opening messages that can cause serious financial damage.

Measures like this prevent others from overtaking your finances and personal lives by pretending to be you. Defenses can fend off identity theft by strangers but may not prevent harm by people who know you best – family members.

Subway suspends spokesman ties despite lack of charges

A recent, ongoing news story highlights how quickly criminal charges can change a defendant's life. Jared Fogle, now 37, is best known as the long-time television spokesperson for Subway, the sandwich restaurant that Fogle claimed helped him lose hundreds of excess pounds starting in 1998.

The investigation of cruise ship crimes

Cruise ship companies invite Wisconsin vacationers to enjoy pleasurable experiences in what appears to be a controlled environment. A cruise ship vacation can be a relief from everyday rules and responsibilities. However, approximately 10 million American passengers expected to take cruises in 2015 are not insulated entirely from worries, including crime.
