Counterfeiting Money in Wisconsin Penalties & Fines
Milwaukee Criminal Defense Attorney Gets Felony Counterfeiting Charges DISMISSED.
My client awoke to a police team knocking on his door to search his Milwaukee house. They seized all of his electronics, including all computers, printers, and his cell phone. He was told he was under investigation for counterfeiting U.S. currency and was told to go speak with the district attorney. This is when he contacted our Milwaukee criminal defense law firm.
You Are Guilty Only If Convicted
When I met with this client, I explained what was going on with the warrant and the seizure of his belongings, and started working on a strategy to handle the situation. After a meeting and a few phone calls with the DA, no criminal charges were brought and my client never spent a single day in jail. I was able to show the DA the problems in the case and about how my guy was caught up in a bad situation and was literally in the wrong place at the wrong time. My client was thrilled about the outcome.
