Two off-duty Wisconsin police officers were both recently arrested stemming from a car accident. When Wisconsin police arrived at the crash, they suspected that the two men were both operating their vehicles while intoxicated. Both men now face a drunk driving charge resulting from the incident.
According to the report, early in the morning in Sheboygan, police officers were called to the scene of a car accident.

No other vehicles were involved, and while the report does not state how much damage both cars took, thankfully neither driver was injured in the crash.
Three men are in custody regarding a recent incident where an alleged burglary went horribly wrong. One of the men has been charged with felony burglary, and the other two are in custody awaiting charges. The Wisconsin man must now prepare his criminal defense against this serious charge.

Two store owners have recently been arrested for allegedly selling illegal substances to customers in their novelty and lingerie store. Wisconsin police suspect that the two men sold synthetic marijuana in their store, and they are accused of making a significant profit off of it. The two have accepted a plea deal in exchange for pleading no contest to each of their drug charges.
According to the report, undercover officers allegedly bought the illegal substance from the owners on two separate occasions.

The executive has been accused of stealing nearly half a million dollars from the organization.
According to the report, the executive was in charge of finances, and he purportedly abused his position of power to both receive and send fraudulent mail. The estimated total that the executive earned from his alleged scheme is $453,737.12 gathered from 2009 to 2012. In that time, he allegedly used a secret bank account and diverted the cash amount of a life insurance policy, insurance reimbursement checks and charitable bequests to that account, and he used the money for personal expenses such as home renovations and new vehicles.
Individuals who are accused of possessing drugs may be viewed negatively by local residents. However, the justice system views these people in a different way. Those who face drug charges are never guilty unless and only until it has been proved according to strict court standards. Until then, they are considered innocent in the state of Wisconsin. One woman is experiencing this type of scenario after police found a mix of drugs in her home.
The woman was charged with possession of narcotic drugs -- a felony. She also faced several other charges, including possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of an illegally obtained prescription -- both misdemeanors. The 37-year-old woman recently pleaded guilty to these counts and, in turn, several other similar felony and misdemeanor counts against her were dismissed.

Now, however, this woman has been charged with attempting to hide the death of a child. She is alleged to have gone into labor prematurely and then delivered the infant in a restroom. According to someone with knowledge of the incident, the baby reportedly did not show clear evidence of life when it was born.

The accusations came about after it was discovered that the male inmate was given access to his cellphone by the prison officers. The cell phone allegedly held sexually explicit photos showing the officers having sex with the inmate. The 40-year-old officer allegedly gave the inmate illegal contraband and was charged with delivering illegal articles to an inmate. The 33-year-old officer faces a charge of obstructing officers.
A woman who lost her children and suffered severe injuries at the hands of her husband is facing charges. She has been accused of placing orders for items and charging them to others without their consent while she was being hospitalized. Wisconsin authorities have charged her with the felony offense of identity theft.
Last year, the woman suffered from an unthinkable tragedy that took the lives of three of her young children and her unborn baby whom she shared with her husband. The man allegedly set the house on fire, leaving the woman badly burned. The man was convicted and is serving a life sentence for the incident.

A 27-year-old woman has been accused of setting a building into a fiery blaze. She was arrested and charged with multiple felonies.

A couple was left out in the cold after having a dispute with the woman's father over a stolen cellphone.
