don't get me wrong, I respect people that stand up to the police, I just will not do it unless the officer provokes me, and I have not yet come across such a situation. I treat them politely and they have always done the same. I realize they might not treat me like that if I wasn't clean cut and white, but I am so it works for me. Bottom line, I try to pick my battles carefully and avoid doing things which will only make the situation worse. I'll let others be the heroes and martyrs. Plus I've never really had anything to hide, I'm a boring person.

Walworth county is the only place I've lived where the the county thrives on being corrupt. In 2010 after I exited a bar I had pulled myself over to park in a legal place so I could use my cell phone. It was about 1:00 am, and I was legally parked on the side of a road. A police officer saw me there and immediately pulled up behind me, put his lights on and detained me. No crime was being done, no suspicious activities that he could report, -- just a community service check. Come to find out he asked if I had been drinking that night,and I said I had some beer, and then I was told I needed to do a road side test, which I refused, because I thought they had no legal basis. Turns out they can do this kind of call whenever they want, in walworth county , while other counties are required to abide by a statue and need some kind of extenuating circumstances,or emergency. I refused a road breath test,so I was taken in and forced to do a blood draw. I was then required to get a lawyer, who set the case up for us to look like we had a chance to win, because the cop was outside of his jurisdiction. Turns out the judge can decide if this is relevant and he can decide to overlook this small detail . He decided to make that point a non issue. Turns out as well that the the blood draw was found to be done and tested on an erroneous machine, -- 3 false positives the same time period mine was drawn. case went to jury,judge said that the evidence of these false positives could not be submitted to the jury, because according to judge kennedy, that had nothing to do with my case, only data from my draw was allowed according to the judge. When the jury wanted the data from the blood draw, they were given the actual test result only, even though the blood draw kit was expired and the lab person threw that box out. they are supposed to show it was a valid blood draw kit, but in Walworth county, that does not matter. Turns out rather than the blood draw person testifying that a chemists testifies in front of the jury so that can look more official,even though she did not draw the blood. In Walworth county the accused does not have a right to face the accuser,or those who draw the blood. This according to the judge is not necessary. Turns out I paid my attorney 20,000 to fight this for 2 years and they extended the dates and made this a drawn out process, only in the end to lose regardless of the facts , which the jury was not allowed to see. In the end my so called attorney was shacking hands with the DA Zeke W...., even before he was speaking to me, as if there was a deal of some sort made and they both benefited. This county is not ever one I want to be convicted of any crime, as they have the power to pull the paperwork and keep things here and do their own sentencing. I received a year in jail, release on a electronic monitor bracelet ,where I have to pay $125 per week, in addition to all the fees that went to the county. That night costs me 35,000 , and made me lose my career. All because the cops here are on the take and they are looking for ways to feed their system. Definitely a corrupt county. All the do gooders will say it was my fault for being over the limit in my car, but the law is not meant to capture and exploit, its meant as a guide line,and when the jurisdiction issues is ignored,and the facts are ignored, its a crime that is committed by the judicial system. Walworth county depends on revenues from these cases and they are corrupt.

Please don't ever post on City-Data again unless you plan on breaking up your one large story into paragraphs. It's a waste of time to sit here and try and read that when it's one giant paragraph.

Regardless of where you're charged in the state of Wisconsin , once you're in the system it is extremely unlikely an individual will prevail unscathed...guilty or innocent.
Another downside of being charged in Wisconsin is public records are available for free to the general public on the internet. Birthdates, home addresses, and any charge down to a simple speeding ticket are presented to the world. For how long I'm not sure, but a least a decade.

Speaking of corruption in Walworth County...has anyone heard about or have any information on the court reporter that fled during a short recess in court with her husband who is wanted by the feds? She took her transcriptions with her and hasn't been seen or heard from since. The Walworth Clerks Office has asked for a warrant but a judge has yet to sign one. What are they trying to hide? If it was any other citizen, a warrant would've been signed in a heartbeat. She was paid for transcripts that she hadn't completed and the ones she did complete were inaccurate or filed incorrectly. Why won't a judge sign a warrant, what are they scared of?

I got raided because they thought my parents house was a meth house and this whole situation went through was just terrible the cops didn't listen they put my mom (she has health problems and is fragile) in handcuffs all because I was protecting myself against my brother in law saying he was going to kill me and he weighs like 350-400ilbs I'm only 200 so I had a knife but had no incentive to do any harm just keep him at bay, so after I leave with nothing done he calls the cops and he say that I sell drugs heroin and meth and what not and they believe him so I spent 3 days In jail and couple days later my house gets raided they don't tell me why and put my mother In handcuffs, its cold out and I have shorts and tee shirt on no shoes and ask if they can bring some out and they bring sandels out and this whole thing is just one bad Nightmare all because I was protecting myself

Default Walworth County Wisconsin

I absolutely believe that they are corrupt! There is a saying that goes “come to Walworth county on vacation and leave on probation”. In 2002, I was going through a divorce in Illinois. And I was finally getting back on my feet when Walworth County put me in jail for child support. I NEVER had a court date or anything. I was put there on Sunday morning in a cement room with no toilet,no clothes,no pillow,no blanket,no bed,no running water,no phone call,nothing but the bugs and tics crawling across the floor! I was left to lay in my own urine, emesis,and menstrual blood until Friday night!! They refused to give me any of my medications even. I still have nightmares from this experience. It was so horrible that even the guards felt sorry for me and told me that the decision to treat me like this came from their superiors and to please not hate them for it. It’s illegal and unhumane to treat animals like this,why is it ok to treat a human being like this? Especially a female who was never even in trouble before. They even managed to **** off my Doctor,who is like the nicest guy in the world. Anyway, I just want people to know that this is wrong and I hope that nobody else ever has to be treated like this. Thank You,Lisa

Bull! I lived in Walworth county for 6 months and its not that bad. It certainly is far from perfect but its not the most corrupt. Rock and Dane county is more corrupt than Walworth. But if you really want to know the most corrupt county in Wisconsin then look no further than Jackson county! The police are corrupt, every business is corrupt (except Moe's hardware store in Black River Falls). The area is peaceful wilderness and healthy to breath there. Too bad almost everyone who lives there is a crook! The only people you can trust there are the Amish. Don't do business there and whatever you do, don't ever buy or sell a home!! You will regret it most definitely! Everyone is a scam artist and the police are in on all the scams!
