Criminal charges can be brought by State or Federal Law Enforcement agencies. Federal Criminal charges are prosecuted with the full force of the United States Government on behalf of the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) by assistant United States Attorneys (“AUSA”). The Federal Law Enforcement Agencies typically involved in Federal Criminal Investigations include the Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”), the Drug Enforcement Administration (“DEA”) and the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”).

Federal Criminal charges differ from State charges in two significant ways. First, the DOJ often investigates Federal Criminal cases for years before bringing charges. This means that Federal charges are far more completely put together than most State cases before the person even knows s/he was even under investigation. The second major difference involves the Federal Sentencing Guidelines. The Guidelines are no longer mandatory, but they still take most discretion away from judges. At the best they give a judge an often high starting point in a sentencing decision. At worst they provide for sometimes harsh mandatory minimum sentences, especially the enhancer for having a gun during the commission of a crime.

The FBI investigates White Collar Crime, including Bank Fraud and Postal Fraud, as well as Bank Robbery and Hobbs Act, or Robbery cases with interstate commerce implications.

The DEA investigates larger drug cases. Most of these cases involve larger scale drug distribution conspiracies. Many people are convicted in Federal Court without ever being found with drugs on their person.

And the IRS investigates various Tax Fraud Cases, including filing fraudulent returns using fake ID numbers, as well as filing fraudulent personal returns which significantly understate the income and/or assets of an individual.

Possession With the Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance.
Section 961.41(1m) makes it a Felony to possess an illegal drug with the intent to deliver it to another person. Many people make the mistake assuming that this statute only covers the intent to sell the drug. That is not the case. If you tell the police that you were holding a drug to give it back to its owner, that is telling the police that you intended to deliver the drug to someone else. Never talk to the police.

The government would need to prove a few things in order to convict on a Possession with the Intent to Deliver a Controlled Substance contrary to sec. 961.41(1m):

Like in the simple Possession of a Controlled Substance charge, the Defendant possessed an illegal controlled substance.
That the substance was a Controlled Substance, or an Illegal Drug.
The Defendant knew or believed that the Substance was an Illegal Drug.
The Defendant Intended to Deliver the Substance to someone else. Again, this doesn’t mean that the Defendant necessarily intended to sell the substance, though this is the typical allegation made by law enforcement.
Many factors come into play when a district attorney in the State of Wisconsin makes a charging decision on a controlled substance arrest. The amount, or weight of the substance; the manner in which a substance is packaged (one package of a quarter ounce of marijuana is likely to be charged as simple possession, while 7 separately packaged gram bags would probably be charged as Possession with Intent to Deliver; and the amount of cash money that a Defendant possesses all come into play.

If you have been suspected of committing a crime, you need the advice of an experienced Milwaukee Wisconsin Criminal Defense Lawyer NOW. If the authorities are questioning you about a crime, the 4 most important words you can say to them are, "I WANT A LAWYER." Do not give any type of statement to the authorities without the advice of counsel. A criminal charge is a life-changing experience. Whether you or someone you know is charged with a felony or misdemeanor, in Wisconsin state courts or a Federal court, being the defendant in a criminal matter is very stressful for both the accused and his or her family. And, a criminal conviction can result in loss of freedom for the person convicted and disturb the relationships between the convicted person and his or her friends and family.

Introducing America's Guilty Plea Problem

I can't let a client plead to allegations in a complaint until and unless we review everything and s/he agrees that s/he did it. Frankly, in Wisconsin, many judges engage in a discussion with a defendant to specifically ask exactly what they did that would make them guilty.

95% of felony convictions are obtained through guilty pleas. Innocent people are being forced to plead guilty. Let's fix this.

The Intercept - Update: Lawmakers in Ten States Have Proposed Legislation Criminalizing Peaceful Protest

"OVER THE WEEKEND, millions of demonstrators took to streets across the country to mobilize against the new president and his agenda, assembling in a national turnout that organizers call the beginning of a reinvigorated protest movement. But in states home to dozens of Saturday’s demonstrations, Republican lawmakers are moving to criminalize and increase penalties on peaceful protesting."

NBC News: What's Behind the GOP's War on the Sixth Amendment?

"Falling largely below the radar, political attacks on candidates who defend the criminally accused have become a staple of Republican advertisements this election cycle....Barry Pollack, president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, told NBC News he is disappointed at the candidates' relatively lukewarm pushback to attacks on their public defense and advocacy records. 'I've been disappointed at not just the fact that those attacks have been made but at the lack of a response to those attacks,' Pollack said. 'I don't think any candidate should be ashamed of the fact that at some point in their career they protected an individual's constitutional rights'....'I think the public is much smarter and much more sophisticated than many political consultants tend to believe. When Ben Carson was running for president, no one was running through his list of patients and saying, you performed surgery on this person who was not a likable person or who committed a crime. The public understands that a surgeon is there to provide a medical service to a patient.'"
