Noisy exhaust leads to allegations of drug crimes for 2

Two individuals are reportedly facing criminal charges after they were allegedly found to be in possession of cocaine during a recent traffic stop in Wisconsin. Drug crimes carry serious consequences if a conviction is obtained, and since the criminal justice system can be complex, the average person may lack the necessary legal knowledge to know how to approach the situation. Those who face such charges may find it advisable to speak with an attorney for guidance in preparing for what comes next by focusing on their defense.

According to reports, law enforcement agents initiated the traffic stop after encountering a vehicle with a noisy exhaust pipe. Upon approaching the driver and asking about the pipe, officers claimed to have noticed that his eyes were bloodshot. After deciding to investigate the matter further and finding out that he was on probation, they proceeded to initiate field sobriety tests.

After he was asked to step out of the vehicle, police claim to have noticed a small bag containing cocaine fall from his lap. A woman was sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle at the time, and police assert that she admitted to using cocaine, but stated that she wasn't sure if there was any more in the vehicle. They allegedly found additional bags in the vehicle during a subsequent search, and both individuals were taken into custody and charged with possession of cocaine.

Those who stand accused of drug crimes may wish to protect themselves against potentially devastating consequences, but they may need assistance in the process. By retaining the services of a defense attorney, a person in Wisconsin could obtain advice on making informed decisions. An attorney can evaluate the client's circumstances and provide guidance on the best course of action to take during subsequent legal proceedings.
