Selling pills leads to felony drug charges for Wisconsin man

Being convicted of a drug crime can lead to serious consequences. Even the seemingly minor charges, such as possession of a small amount of marijuana, can result in a prison sentence and negatively impact your future. When faced with drug charges, it is important to understand the implications of such a charge.

Even if the drugs are prescription drugs, a person can face criminal charges if he or she is delivering the prescription drugs to someone who does not have a prescription. A young man from Wisconsin was charged with several drug-related felonies and misdemeanors.

It is unclear how local law enforcement was tipped off, but investigators, through the use of an informant, learned that the young man was selling prescription drugs from his home. On several different occasions the young man sold the informant drugs, including Xanax and Adderall, for money.

He was arrested and charged with a number of crimes including:

  • Manufacturing/delivering prescription drugs
  • Possession with intent to deliver prescription drugs
  • Using his home as a place for trafficking drugs
  • Possessing drug paraphernalia

For this young man, his entire future could change if he is convicted of these charges. Any criminal conviction can make it difficult to find a job or access higher education. His plea hearing is scheduled for early August - if he is convicted of the crimes he could spend the next 13 years of his life serving a lengthy prison sentence.

For anyone facing felony or misdemeanor charges, it can help to discuss the situation with someone who knows what options are available. Being charged with a crime is a serious matter; knowing how to protect your rights can help minimize the impact a potential penalty can have.
