Wisconsin Criminal Laws

Most crimes are covered under the laws of the states, rather than those of the federal government. Wisconsin's criminal code covers a wide range of criminal activity, including everything from manslaughter and murder to prostitution and solicitation. While states typically prohibit similar types of criminal behavior, the elements of the crimes and the potential penalties can differ greatly from state to state. That's why it's important to be familiar with your state's specific criminal laws, especially if you or a loved one is facing criminal charges. FindLaw's Wisconsin Criminal Laws section is a great place to start. Click on a link below to learn more about Wisconsin's criminal laws.
