Did your trip to the Wisconsin Dells end with an arrest? The legal system can be difficult to navigate and even more so if you are an out-of-towner. Whether you are from Wisconsin or from out-of-state, it is helpful to have local professionals guide you through the defense process.
When arrested in the Wisconsin Dells, regardless of where you are from, you are under Wisconsin’s jurisdiction. For example, if you are found in the Wisconsin Dells drunk driving, Wisconsin has the right to prosecute you for OWI (Operating While Intoxicated) or DUI (Driving Under the Influence). These charges are serious and must be handled quickly and carefully.
Traffic crimes cover the spectrum from misdemeanor to felony and include suspended or revoked drivers licenses, and criminal traffic citations. If charged with a traffic misdemeanor or any other misdemeanor, you need to take the charges seriously. It is important to get an attorney to assist you as quickly as possible so you can put it behind you.
While it would be great, for those out-of-state, if you could go home and hide from these charges, that is not the reality. By US Constitutional law, states and territories are required to render suspects on the request of another state. This process is referred to often as extradition. Find a local attorney who can be an advocate for you through this process so you can put these charges to rest quickly and return home without worries.
