Beloit Man Sentenced for Distributing Heroin

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
December 17, 2012

Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Antwon Taylor, 20, Beloit, Wis., was sentenced today by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 36 months in federal prison, to be followed by 36 months supervised release, for distributing heroin. Taylor was charged with four counts of distributing heroin in the Beloit area in January through July 2011. Taylor pleaded guilty to one of the counts on October 23, 2012.

At the sentencing, Judge Conley noted the dangerousness and negative impact upon the community that heroin distribution presents. However, Judge Conley determined that Taylor deserved a sentence below the 57- 71 months called for by the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines based, in part, on Taylor’s lack of any prior criminal record and his youth.

The charges against Antwon Taylor were the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, which consists of the Beloit Police Department, Rock County Sheriff’s Office, and Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert A. Anderson.
