A Milwaukee dealer who was arrested for selling heroin in Wisconsin Rapids in late May has been sentenced to 12 years and six months imprisonment.
The charges stem from a May 24 investigation into the activities of 29-year-old Milwaukee resident Devin Phillips, who was caught with multiple plastic baggies of heroin after police observed him selling the drug to a confidential informant.
His accomplice, 32-year-old Wisconsin Rapids resident April Habeck, drove Phillips to and from Milwaukee to sell the drug in the Wisconsin Rapids area.
Phillips will serve seven years and six months in prison, with five years of the twelve year sentence in extended supervision.
Habeck is still awaiting a plea hearing on Oct. 27, and faces similar charges of manufacturing and selling heroin.
