36-year-old woman accused of drug crimes

A Wisconsin woman was taken into custody following a search of her Red Springs home that occurred on May 24. Deputies from the Shawano County Sheriff's Department and Stockbridge-Munsee police officers claim to have found and seized more than 100 grams of marijuana and other drugs. They also allege to have found multiple zip-lock baggies containing marijuana, including a 1-gallon bag, a half-gallon bag, and at least 36 smaller bags. Police also claim to have found cocaine and a hollow pen tube in a drawer in the bathroom.

Police state that the search was conducted pursuant to a search warrant, but the basis for seeking the warrant was not stated. The 36-year-old woman now faces several drug charges, including possession of marijuana with intent to deliver, second or subsequent possession of marijuana and cocaine and maintaining a place for drug trafficking. She faces up to three and a half years of imprisonment on each charge, plus fines of up to $10,000 per count if she is convicted.

The accused woman was released from jail after posting a $750 bond. Her initial appearance on the charges was scheduled for June 24 in Shawano-Menominee Circuit Court.

A person who has been accused of committing a crime has a right to seek help from a criminal defense attorney. It may be possible for an attorney to dispute the validity of a search warrant, which can sometimes lead to the suppression of evidence. In some cases, an attorney may have the ability to negotiate a plea bargain that provides for some charges to be dismissed in exchange for a guilty plea on others. An attorney may also be able to help negotiate to minimize some of the penalties associated with felony drug charges.
