Theft Charge Dismissed Week Before Trial

03/21/17 – Sauk County – Being blamed for something you did not do is stressful. Being criminally charged and going to trial for something you did not do is even more stressful.

02/16/17 – Rock County – Client was charged with allowing his employee operate a commercial vehicle without a CDL license.

The employee took off from the job site after getting into an argument with another employee and crashed the dump truck.
