Walworth County criminal defense attorney weapons violation

In Wisconsin, most adults are legally permitted to own a firearm without requiring a special license. However, one situation in which a person can be prohibited from possessing a firearm is after a conviction for a felony offense. The consequences of illegal possession of a gun after a felony conviction can be severe, and it is important that you know how to avoid them. However, if you or someone you know is facing such charges, an experienced criminal defense attorney can build a strong case on your behalf to reduce your charges or avoid another conviction altogether.

Consequences of Illegal Possession of a Firearm in Wisconsin

You may be prohibited from possessing a gun not only if you have been convicted of a felony in Wisconsin, but also if you have been convicted of an offense in another state that would be considered a felony in Wisconsin, if you have been found not guilty of a felony due to mental illness, or if you have been issued a judgment of juvenile delinquency for an offense that is considered a felony for an adult.

Milwaukee County criminal defense attorney OWI

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), passengers account for nearly 30 percent of fatalities in accidents involving drunk driving. While an adult may knowingly make the decision to get in a car with an intoxicated driver, children often have little choice in the matter. For this reason, OWI with a passenger under the age of 16 is a very serious offense in Wisconsin, and you should be aware of the potential consequences if you or someone you know has been arrested for this crime.

Penalties for OWI With a Child in Wisconsin

In general, the possible penalties for an OWI conviction in Wisconsin vary depending on the number of prior convictions on the offender’s record and the harm the offense has caused to other people. For example, a first offense typically results in only a fine of $150 to $300 and a revoked driver’s license for 6-9 months, whereas a fourth or subsequent offense, or one resulting in great bodily harm or death, can result in serious felony charges, with penalties that can amount to up to $100,000 in fines, up to 40 years in prison, and a revoked license for 5 years beyond the confinement sentence in the most serious cases.

Dodge County personal injury attorney domestic abuse

Domestic violence is a serious issue in Wisconsin, with nearly 30,000 incidents reported to law enforcement each year. Many of these incidents result in criminal convictions for charges ranging from misdemeanor battery to Class A felony murder, but these convictions may offer little comfort to abuse survivors who are left to cope with injuries and their lasting effects. If you have been the victim of domestic abuse, you may need an attorney who can help you pursue compensation through a victimology claim in civil court.

How to Pursue a Civil Lawsuit Against an Abuser in Wisconsin

A victimology lawsuit is similar in some ways to a personal injury lawsuit you might file after a car accident. You will need to prepare evidence to demonstrate to the court that your injuries were caused by the actions of another person and that you have incurred significant damages and expenses as a result. In order to present a strong case for full compensation, you should also keep a record of all damages related to your injuries, including medical expenses, lost wages, emotional distress, in addition to pain and suffering.
