Possession, Trafficking, and Sale of Methamphetamine in WI
Wisconsin state law has taken several measures to ensure that any sort
of involvement with meth is illegal, including its possession, trafficking,
sale, and manufacturing. While a first-time possession of methamphetamine
is classified as a misdemeanor, a second or subsequent offenses are considered
felonies and can carry up to 3 ½ years in prison and $10,000 in
fines upon conviction.
Penalties for meth crimes may increase depending on the following factors:
- The amount of meth found in a person’s possession
- The location of the arrest
- The defendant’s history of prior meth offenses
In addition to the immediate criminal consequences, a meth crime conviction
can inflict major damage to a person’s reputation and minimize their
future opportunities for employment, housing, or obtaining certain state-issued
licenses. Given the severity of these consequences, if you have been charged
with any sort of meth-related crime, it is vital you contact our office
immediately to begin building your defense.
