Charged with Delivery of A Controlled Substance?

A delivery of a controlled substance charge is a very serious charge. The Wisconsin legislature, under Wis. Stat. § 961.01 has made that very clear. Individuals who are involved in the commercial traffic of controlled substances face the “possibility of lengthy terms of imprisonment” as a deterrent to trafficking by such persons.

The Wisconsin legislature has further recommended that “upon conviction for trafficking, such persons should be sentenced in a manner which will deter further trafficking by them, protect the public from their pernicious activities, and restore them to legitimate and socially useful endeavors.” This is a line that many judges like to repeat when sentencing an individual for delivery of a controlled substance in Wisconsin. Although no criminal charge should be taken lightly, a felony delivery charge should be taken very seriously. If you are facing any type of drug charge you need an aggressive criminal defense attorney to fight for you.
