If you are under investigation for a drug related crime, or if you have already been charged, remember that an arrest is not a conviction; you have a right to an attorney, to have that attorney present during all questioning, to plead your innocence to the charges, to force the state to prove your guilt and to face your accusers at trial. When a person makes a deal - called plea bargaining - with the prosecution, they are pleading guilty to the crime charged. When a person pleads guilty, they are admitting to every element of the crime charged and to all harm resulting from that crime. Anyone who is charged with a Wisconsin drug crime or a Federal drug crime must be notified of their rights; invoking your rights is easy - ask to call our office.
