Serious Drug Charges Demand A Serious Defense
There is no such thing as a “minor” drug offense. A conviction for even a simple possession charge can have far-reaching consequences, resulting in a criminal record that can have a negative impact on employment and housing opportunities, and can make you ineligible for certain loans. When there is this much on the line, you need help from a criminal defense lawyer who understands how to build an effective defense against criminal charges.
At the law firm of Kaehne & Barrette, S.C., our attorneys are dedicated to protecting the rights of individuals in Sheboygan and throughout Wisconsin. The police and prosecutors take drug offenses seriously, and will seek the harshest penalties available to them. It is important to mount an equally serious defense to these types of criminal charges.

A Note About Marijuana Charges
Recent years have seen a shift in how people view marijuana use. Many states have legalized the use of marijuana to treat medical conditions, and a number of states have outright legalized the recreational use of marijuana. Despite these shifts, any use of marijuana is illegal under federal law, and Wisconsin only allows for a very limited use of medical marijuana. This means if you are charged with any type of marijuana-related crime in Wisconsin, you run the risk of potentially harsh consequences.
Our lawyers understand the negative impact of our country’s drug laws, especially when it comes to marijuana. Both of our attorneys are members of the National Organization to Reform Marijuana Laws (NORML) and are staunch advocates for the legalization of cannabis. However, we recognize that there is still a long way to go in this area and we will build a strong defense against any marijuana charge in an effort to reduce the negative impact of criminal charges on your life.
