Criminal Attorneys Who Understand Just How Tough Penalties Can Be In Wisconsin

When it comes to criminal charges in Superior, you cannot afford to risk conviction by trying to defend your own case. The criminal justice system is swift and fierce with its sentencing, and you could be facing incarceration, heavy fines, and lengthy probation sentences depending on the severity of your charges.

The state of Wisconsin categorizes crimes as either misdemeanors or felonies, with felonies being the more serious and more harshly punished of the two. Misdemeanors and felonies, in turn, are further broken down by classes of severity. To help you understand the consequences you could face, we have defined the penalties associated with the different degrees of felonies and misdemeanors in Superior below.

Penalties For Felonies

In Wisconsin, felonies are classified as Class A through Class I, with Class A felonies being the most serious. The penalties for felonies in the state are as follows:

For a Class A felony, life imprisonment

For a Class B felony, imprisonment for up to 60 years.

For a Class C felony, a fine of up to $100,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 40 years.

For a Class D felony, a fine of up to $100,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 25 years.

For a Class E felony, a fine of up to $50,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 15 years.

For a Class F felony, a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 12 years, 6 months.

For a Class G felony, a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 10 years.

For a Class H felony, a fine of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 6 years.

For a Class I felony, a fine of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 3 years, 6 months.


Penalties For Misdemeanors

Misdemeanors here are classified as Class A through Class C, with Class A misdemeanors being the most serious. The penalties for misdemeanors in Wisconsin are as follows:

  • For a Class A misdemeanor, a fine of up to $10,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 9 months.
  • For a Class B misdemeanor, a fine of up to $1,000 and/or imprisonment of up to 90 days.
  • For a Class C misdemeanor, a fine of up to $500 and/or imprisonment of up to 30 days.

Regardless of the severity of your charges, a conviction of any

Whether you are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor, you will be saddled with a criminal record that can follow you your whole life. Your criminal history will become a public record and accessible to anyone with a computer and a few dollars. This is truly unfortunate because a criminal record can limit your employment opportunities, as an estimated 92 percent of employers run criminal background checks when hiring for certain jobs. As you might imagine, a criminal record can make it difficult to succeed in today’s highly competitive job market.

In addition to employers, your record can be accessed by landlords, college admissions boards, and others. In this way, a criminal history can hinder your ability to find housing, further your education, and more. With a felony conviction, you may sacrifice additional civil rights — including the right to vote or the right to own a firearm. In addition, your options for travel could be limited, as many countries will not provide a visa to American citizens who have been convicted of a felony.

Bottom line? A criminal conviction of any kind translates to a devastating, lasting impact on your future. Do not gamble with your employment opportunities, accommodation options, future education, civil liberties, and your good name. To protect your freedom and finances, it is critical to enlist the aid of a lawyer who is experienced with Wisconsin criminal law as soon as you are arrested or charged.
