Question: What are some of the most commonly charged federal crimes in Wisconsin?

Answer: I don’t know that I have seen any actual statistics on the commonly charged federal crimes in Wisconsin; but what I have seen and what we have handled and dealt with a lot, the categories that are most likely to be charged in federal court for crimes are serious drug crimes, drug conspiracies, the child pornography and certain types of gun cases. Those are pretty commonly handled federal criminal cases. The other thing that we handle quite often that maybe is not charged as often but is handled most often by us are driving while impaired, DUI issues, when they’re charged in federal court. That can happen; it’s a very specific issue. It only happens when someone is driving on federal land of some kind when they’re accused of the DUI. So it’s pretty specialized, but that’s an area that we do get into in federal court as well.
