Compassionate and Aggressive Defense for All Types of Traffic Crimes
In Wisconsin, if you're operating your vehicle and commit an offense, you
could be accused of a traffic crime. Various types of conduct can be considered
criminal, and, depending on the circumstances, may be charged as misdemeanors
or felonies. When the State prosecutes a traffic crime, it must prove
beyond a reasonable doubt that the defendant's alleged acts meet the elements
of the offense. Although the prosecution may have evidence to support
their arguments, it does not mean it's enough to convince a judge or jury
of guilt. Defenses may be raised to challenge the accusations.
If you've been charged, know you may have other options besides pleading
guilty. Our attorneys will learn about your situation and help you understand
possible defenses or legal avenues to pursue to work toward a favorable
outcome on your behalf.
We provide zealous advocacy for various types of traffic crimes, including:
Hit and run: When a person is in an accident, they are legally required to exchange
information with others involved. The law applies whether or not the individual
was at fault. The penalties imposed for failing to fulfill this requirement
depend on the circumstances. For instance, if a person or occupied vehicle
was struck and no death or injury resulted, the punishments include up
to 6 months' imprisonment and/or a fine between $300 and $1,000. The penalties
increase to a maximum term of imprisonment of 9 months and a fine of up
to $10,000 if injury occurred. If great bodily harm or death resulted,
the punishments increase even further.
Eluding an officer: If a law enforcement official signals a person to pull over and they knowingly
fail to do so, they can be charged with a Class I felony. The punishments
include up to 3 years and 6 months' imprisonment and/or a fine of up to
$10,000. If the conduct resulted in bodily harm or property damage, the
offense is a Class H felony, which carries a maximum prison term of 6
years and/or a fine of up to $10,000. If great bodily harm resulted, the
accused could spend up to 12 years and 6 months behind bars and be ordered
to pay a fine of up to $25,000. They may be facing up to 15 years' imprisonment
and or a fine of up to $50,000 for fleeing an officer and causing the
death of another.
Reckless driving: It is unlawful for a person to negligently operate a vehicle with a disregard
for the safety of others. Depending on the circumstances, a conviction
may result in a fine of up to $1,000 or a prison sentence of up to 3 years
and 6 months and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
