Sun Prairie Man Sentenced To 10 Years For Distributing Heroin

MADISON, WIS. -- John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Jasson Howell, 31, Sun Prairie, Wis., was sentenced today by Judge Lynn S. Adelman to 10 years in federal prison for charges stemming from his distribution of heroin.  Howell pleaded guilty to the charges on December 17, 2013. 

Howell distributed heroin in the Western District of Wisconsin from November 2006 to October 2009.  He was the source of the heroin that resulted in the near-fatal overdose of a 17-year-old girl in November 2008.  Howell has two prior state felony drug convictions and was on probation for those offenses at the time of his conduct in this case.   

The charges against Howell were the result of an investigation conducted by the Madison Police Department and the Sun Prairie Police Department.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meredith P. Duchemin.
