Wisconsin biker faces felony drug charge and more

Whenever drugs are involved, the potential for being charged with a criminal drug offense exists. In Caledonia, Wisconsin, a 23-year-old man was riding his bike with a garbage bag. The large garbage bag was challenging his balance so police officers approached him to see if he was alright. After a brief conversation, the officers ran the bikers ID and found a warrant out for his arrest. The warrant was for failure to appear in court from a past citation of operating a vehicle on a revoked license. Suddenly, the man's bike ride quickly deteriorated to serious legal troubles.

Police officers, reacting to the warrant, apprehended the biker and searched him, discovering a glass pipe and two Adderall pills. After the glass pipe residue was tested by the police, resulting in a positive test for marijuana, the man was charged with a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia. The two Adderall pills garnered one felony count of possession of a controlled substance.

The serious drug charges, if convicted, can land the man in jail for up to three years and seven months, and possibly cost him $10,500 in fines. All the while, the man still faces the charge of operating a vehicle on a revoked license that initiated his police custody.

Having been charged on July 5 and scheduled to appear in court less than two weeks later on July 18, the 23-year-old Caledonia man has little time to prepare his defense. If there is a silver lining amongst the story, it's that Wisconsin criminal defense attorneys can provide experienced defense council for drug charges. Being represented by a respected lawyer that understands local precedents and realistic sentencing terms can lessen the stress of facing criminal drug charge.
