Drug Sale Crimes
Milwaukee Criminal Defense Lawyer
Wisconsin police department officials are concerned with illegal drug use
within the state, so much so that they go out of their way to arrest people for
drug crimes and slam them with penalties. In particular, drug sale crimes are constantly
on their radar, as it is believed that catching someone who sells drugs
breaks the link between the common user and the manufacturer. What the
police do not realize is that their zealous hunt for criminals can lead
to excessive punishments for nonviolent crimes, or even the prosecution
of someone who is innocent.
If you have been arrested and accused of selling illicit substances in
Wisconsin, let Milwaukee Criminal Defense Attorney Christopher J. Cherella
be the one to defend your rights. With 20+ years of proven legal experience
and origins as a criminal prosecutor, he can provide you with the strength
and insight needed to shut down the prosecution’s claims.

Defenses for Drug Sale Crimes
If you are convicted for selling illegal drugs or controlled substances,
even a scant amount, you could be facing felony charges. By definition,
this means you will be sentenced to at least one year in jail and thousands
in fines if convicted. To protect yourself from the heavy hand of the
law, you will need a creative, effective defense from a lawyer you can trust.
Defenses that may be applicable to your case include:
Mistaken identity: Not many alleged drug deals are actually caught on camera. The police may
go off word of mouth or what they thought they saw to get an arrest. Your
identity must be tied to a drug deal without any reasonable doubt or a
conviction is not justified.
Mistaken intent: Handing someone an illegal drug is not the same as selling them an illegal
drug, and it comes with much less severe charges. If you have been positively
identified to be someone involved with a drug crime, the prosecution must
prove that it was a drug
sale. By challenging them for burdens of proof, the prosecution’s entire
argument may collapse.
Mistaken substance: Just as many alleged drug sales are not seen on camera, many alleged substances
tied to a drug sale arrest are never actually recovered. Can the prosecution
prove that you were selling an illicit substance and not something else entirely?
