JEFFERSON — Pre-trial and status conferences are scheduled, respectively, in Jefferson County Circuit Court for two people from Stone Lake — one a woman charged with possession of heroin with intent to deliver and the other a man charged with bail jumping.
They are to appear in court at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 6.
The two were charged after they were found allegedly overdosed on heroin in June at the Pine Cone Travel Plaza parking lot in Johnson Creek.
According to a criminal complaint, Denessa A. Hamilton, 28, and Casey L. Miller, 44, both of Stone Lake, were found unconscious at the travel plaza on June 10.
The complaint stated that at approximately 9:05 p.m. that day, a Johnson Creek Police Department officer responded to an overdose complaint at the Pine Cone Travel Plaza, located at 685 W. Linmar Lane in the Village of Johnson Creek, and upon arrival, found Hamilton and Miller unresponsive in a vehicle.
“Defendant Hamilton was slumped under the steering wheel of the vehicle and defendant Miller was slumped under the dash of the front passenger seat,” the complaint stated. “Defendant Hamilton was transported to Watertown Regional Medical Center for medical treatment. Defendant Miller had to be administered two doses of Narcan and CPR on scene and was then transported to Aurora Medical Center for medical attention.”
Law enforcement officials responded to the Watertown hospital to speak with Hamilton and were advised that medical staff had removed a baggie of white powdery or chunky gray substance from the defendant’s body when inserting a catheter.
The baggie was secured as evidence and turned over to law enforcement. Based on training and experience, a law enforcement officer present believed the substance in the baggie to be consistent with the appearance of heroin.
“Defendant Hamilton, believed to be truthful and reliable as statements are made against her penal interests, admitted that she and defendant Miller purchased some heroin and then they snorted the heroin and a little bit of methamphetamine together,” the complaint stated.
The weight of the gray, chunky material was almost 3.8 grams.
During his interview with investigators, Miller said he could not remember what had happened earlier in the night.
After a review of bail/bond information in a Sawyer County case involving Miller, in which he is charged with the felony offenses of bailjumping and possession of methamphetamine, it was determined that Miller likely had violated terms of that bond.
If convicted, Hamilton could face a fine of $50,000 and imprisonment of up to 15 years.
If Miller is convicted, he could face a fine of up to $10,000 and imprisonment of up to six years.
