If you've been arrested for a crime in Wisconsin which you didn't commit, you may not be sure whether or not you need to hire a lawyer for your defense.

Many innocent people fail to contact a skilled defense attorney after being charged for a crime they know they did not commit, assuming the courts would never convict an innocent person.  

What these individuals may not realize is this:

It is possible for an innocent person to be convicted of a crime in Wisconsin.

Furthermore, the inherent risks involved when facing criminal charges without proper legal representation can be severe and life-changing.


If you're facing criminal charges of any kind, consult a skilled defense attorney in Wisconsin right away.

"If I'm Innocent, Why Should I Hire a Lawyer?"

There's a common misconception that you don't need a lawyer if you're innocent of the crime you've been accused of committing. However, being innocent and being found innocent are two very different matters.

Any time you're facing criminal charges anywhere in the state, you should contact a proven Wisconsin lawyer for guidance. Even if you didn't commit the crime you've been accused of, there could be a number of other factors working against you, such as:

  • Being mistakenly identified
  • Being accused of a crime in Wisconsin by law enforcement
  • Being falsely accused of a crime by another person
  • Being suspected of a crime based on a past arrest
  • Committing one crime, but being accused of a different or additional crime you did not commit

Regardless of the reason you might end up being taken into custody, you have a right to an attorney.

Unfortunately, sometimes people do get convicted of crimes they didn't commit--impacting their freedom, families and financial futures. To help achieve your best possible result, it's important to contact an established criminal defense attorney with a strong record of success.

"What Should I Tell Police if I'm Innocent?"

If you are approached for questioning by the police, you should calmly and politely refrain from answering any questions and, instead, ask to speak to an attorney--even if you're innocent.

It is in the best interest for your defense not to answer any questions until you have the guidance of an attorney to help you understand the implications of what is being asked. Your freedom can depend upon it.

Contacting an experienced attorney instead of answering law enforcement's questions may be the best way to protect your innocence in the end.

"What Should I Do If I Was Arrested for a Crime I Didn't Commit in Wisconsin?"

If you've been charged with a crime in Wisconsin, don't put off contacting a criminal defense attorney because you believe your innocence will be enough to get the charges dismissed.

Unfortunately, simply being innocent may not be enough to prove your innocence in court. As a result, many innocent people fall victim to criminal charges and their implications for a lifetime.

Regardless of your innocence, whenever you are charged with a crime in Wisconsin it's in your best interest to contact an established criminal defense attorney.

Don't make the mistake of failing to hire an established criminal defense attorney if you're facing criminal charges of any kind in Wisconsin; contact Stangl Law for a FREE Consultation today.
