Can you go to jail if you hide your car from the repo man in Wisconsin?

It is possible; Wisconsin is a self-help repossession state. Hiding the vehicle is called hindering repossession and is comparable to auto theft. When you purchase a car by loan, you do not technically own the car outright. You own it cooperatively with the loan provider. When you default on your loan, you give up the rights you had to the vehicle, and via lien law, the loan provider now owns the vehicle. Therefore it is not yours to hide.

No, the lender can not have you put in jail because they have a lien on you car.
