Alleged violent crimes lead to plea of insanity in Wisconsin

A supposed belief that a virtual character was, in fact, real, seems to have been a significant factor in an incident that allegedly occurred in Wisconsin. Violent crimes are said to have been perpetrated in a section of woodland by two girls who were apparently classmates of their supposed victim. One of the accused is apparently planning to enter a not guilty plea by reason of insanity.

Many opposed to trying juveniles as adults for sex crimes

In Wisconsin, concern has been voiced with an increasing trend of trying juveniles in adult courts. With particular regard to sex crimes, data suggests that minors convicted as adults are more than 30 percent likely to commit further crimes upon release from incarceration. Percentages of crimes recommitted are said to be much lower for minors tried in juvenile court.

High school teacher admits to sex crimes in Wisconsin

A member of a Wisconsin high school faculty has pleaded guilty to sexual acts with a member of the student body. The 16-year-old involved told authorities that he and his teacher engaged in sexual activities at least 10 to 15 times. The woman, who has since admitted to the sex crimes, happens to be married. She is also reported to have sent the young man photos of herself while she was on her honeymoon with her husband.

Federal drug crimes investigation leads to many arrests

A situation outside Wisconsin recently ended with 16 people being arrested. The incident involved a federal drug crimes investigation that is said to have lasted more than a year. Officers apparently used wiretaps, surveillance and controlled drug purchases in their efforts to disband the alleged drug organization.

Search continues for man convicted of sex crimes in Wisconsin

The penalties of convictions for sexual offenses in Wisconsin can be quite severe. Many convicted of sex crimes in the past have been forced to register as offenders and forced to wear electronic tracking devices on their bodies. One man apparently has ditched his device, which has led to a manhunt.

Where to seek guidance for domestic violence issues in Wisconsin

Being accused of intentional acts of physical harm against a spouse or another adult with whom one is in a relationship may produce immediate and long-term negative consequences, even in the absence of a conviction. For this and many other reasons, it is advisable that anyone accused of domestic violence in Wisconsin seek clarification of the laws and regulations that govern such matters in this state before proceeding to court. Because Wisconsin law does not prohibit acts defined under that specific term, such situations can be complicated and difficult to understand without the benefit of a criminal law background.

Experienced defense a central focus of violent crimes cases

Being accused of a serious crime in Wisconsin or elsewhere often has immediate and long-lasting consequences. Every situation is different, yet every person is presumed innocent, unless proved otherwise in court. Aggressive, experienced defense is typically key in violent crimes cases to obtain results that minimize the potentially permanent negative impact such situations can have on one's life.

Minimize your chances of getting pulled over by police

Driving is a necessary part of life, but getting pulled over by the cops is an aspect of your travel that is mostly avoidable. The attention of police can be minimized by eliminating behaviors that give officers a reason to stop you and give you a ticket. If you do get pulled over, it's important to remain polite, as a belligerent attitude is likely to only make the situation worse.

Wisconsin sex crimes sentencing occurs 4 years after incident

A sexual assault took place in 2012. The incident reportedly occurred at a county fair. Two years later, DNA evidence obtained through a sexual assault analysis kit at the emergency room following the incident was apparently matched to a Wisconsin man who was registered as a sex crimes offender.
