How social media can affect criminal cases

If you are facing criminal charges in Wisconsin, it is wise to understand the ways in which your social media profiles and postings may impact your case. Nowadays, many people have social media accounts across a broad variety of different mediums, and just as you may use these channels to find out more about a colleague, babysitter, a potential date or what have you, you can expect that whoever is prosecuting your criminal case may do the same. So, before you post to any of your social media accounts, understand how doing so may affect your case.

Just the accusation of a crime being committed can sometimes cause long-term or permanent damage to a person's reputation, even if the allegations are found to be untrue.

A Wisconsin man faces this very possibility after it was alleged that he possessed pornographic images of children on his computer. If found guilty of all charges, the man could be imprisoned for up to 250 years and fined $1 million.
