Facing Disorderly Conduct, Domestic Assault/Battery, Strangulation or Suffocation Charges in Wisconsin?
The seriousness of a disorderly conduct charge coinciding with domestic violence is that a conviction will be permanent on your criminal record. This will prevent you from ever purchasing a firearm and will affect your ability to gain employment. The long-term consequences here are serious.
Strangulation and suffocation charges can be found under Wisconsin Statute 940.325(1):
“Whoever intentionally impedes the normal breathing or circulation of blood by applying pressure on the throat or neck or by blocking the nose or mouth of another person is guilty of a Class H felony.”
If charged with strangulation or suffocation you are facing a felony conviction. These are very serious allegations that require serious criminal defense. Our attorneys have extensive domestic violence and assault defense experience and will do everything possible to seek a positive outcome.
