Drug Trafficking Crimes
Criminal Defense Attorney in Milwaukee
Few criminal accusations can dismantle and permanently tarnish your reputation
as fast as an arrest for drug trafficking crimes. The state of Wisconsin
considers this action one of the most serious criminal violations possible
and utilizes severe punishment in an attempt to deter people from doing
it. In fact, any charge related to drug trafficking is nearly guaranteed
to be considered a felony, even when minimal amounts of illicit substances
are in question.
Penalties associated with drug crimes in Wisconsin may include:
- Years in prison
- Thousands in fines
- Lengthy probation periods
- Loss of employment
Defending yourself and your rights must take a priority the moment you
have been arrested. The entirety of your future could be hanging in the
balance, and hesitation will not do. When you need serious representation
that will not back down, be sure to
contact our Milwaukee drug crime attorneys from the Law Offices of Christopher J. Cherella right away.
Crafting Defenses on Your Behalf
There has never been such a thing as a hopeless criminal case. No matter
what evidence the prosecution claims to have against you, there is an
opportunity for you to stand up for yourself and challenge it. Even if
you do not think a total case dismissal is possible, we can fight for
lessened charges and, therefore, lessened penalties. Everything hinges
on the defense you are able to construct with our help.
Some of the ways we can defend you against trafficking charges include:
Inadmissible evidence: When the police gather evidence against you, they must have first had proper
reason to do so. If your arrest seemingly came “out of nowhere,”
you may be able to contest that the
search and seizure of your property was unlawful.
Unknowing or unwilling: Drug trafficking involves clandestine operations and secrecy. There are
numerous examples of people being used to move drugs from one location
to another, unbeknownst to them. Could it be that you had never intended
to carry the illegal substances?
Mistaken identity: Sometimes a drug trafficking case centers on someone who allegedly sold
drugs to an undercover officer, but the arrest does not happen immediately.
We may be able to prove that you were mistaken for the real perpetrator
of the crime.
