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.
