Drug charges here for woman held in Forest County homicide
space
A Pearson woman originally arrested in the heroin overdose death of a Forest County man, made an initial appearance in Langlade County Court Monday to face drug charges here.

Heather A. Bazille-Grissius, 31, was brought to court from the Forest County Jail, where she is being held on a $75,000 cash bond, charged with first degree reckless homicide.

The drug charges stem from her arrest here, as she was not only found in possession of illegal substances during the booking process at the jail, a subsequent search warrant of her home turned up a plethora of illegal drugs and paraphernalia.

The resulting counts include maintaining a drug trafficking place, two counts of possession of narcotic drugs, one possession with intent to deliver THC charge, and another count of possession of cocaine.

According to online court records, Bazille-Grissius was arrested on Jan. 25 and was found in possession of five grams of marijuana, 11 Oxycodone pills, and four bags of heroin when she was booked at the jail.

The search warrant at a town of Ainsworth home she shared with a male co-defendant, turned up multiple jewel bags of marijuana, heroin, cocaine, and 28 Oxycodone pills. Also located was numerous items of drug paraphernalia, including pipes, and digital scales with both heroin and cocaine residue.

She will return to court here on August 20.

Other defendants making initial appearances before Judge John Rhode included;

—Jesse J. Jacobson, Jr., 57, Wabeno, who was ordered to a $2,000 cash bond, as he appeared via video from the jail, facing a seventh offense operating while intoxicated offense following a Saturday evening arrest.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 12 1/2 years in prison and a $25,000 fine, with a mandatory minimum prison sentence of three years. Langlade County District Attorney Elizabeth Gebert noted this significant penalty when requesting the cash bond.

Additionally, he is charged with operating while revoked/alcohol related.

Online records indicate a citizen witness notified authorities of a possibly intoxicated driver approaching Antigo just before 8 p.m. Saturday. The driver, later identified as Jacobson, was stopped in a Superior Street parking lot and failed field sobriety tests.

A preliminary breath test at the scene yielded a blood alcohol level of .196, over twice the legal limit for driving.

Should Jacobson post bond, he must maintain absolute sobriety, have no presence in any establishment with a Class B liquor license, and not drive without a valid license.

—Jeffrey R. Alm, 38, White Lake, pled not guilty to three charges and had a $650 cash bond continued. Alm faces counts of bail jumping, battery and disorderly conduct relating to a June 21 domestic incident at a town of Wolf River residence.

Records show Alm is alleged to have assaulted two individuals, who both had visible injuries consistent with their telling of events. He is to have no violent or abusive contact with the victims while the matter is pending.

—Michael A. Teigland, 22, Wausau, saw his signature bond continued on charges of battery or threat to a judge, prosecutor, or law enforcement officer, criminal damage to property, and disorderly conduct.

All of the counts relate to an April 23 incident at the Langlade County Jail. Teigland is accused of flooding his cell, causing a significant amount of water damage. In addition, he initially refused to leave his cell and threatened a corrections officer.

Teigland is currently in custody in Forest County in another matter.

—Kassandra DeClark, 36, 618 1/2 Fifth Ave., pled not guilty to two charges, including criminal trespass to property and disorderly conduct. She was ordered to a $1,000 signature bond and may have no contact with the alleged victims or their residences.

According the criminal complaint, authorities responded to a disturbance at a town of Ainsworth residence early Monday. DeClark had allegedly entered the home without permission and began yelling at the residents about a female being at the location.

—Gregory R. Specht, 48, Rhinelander, had a $281.15 cash bond continued, as he faces three identical counts of issuing a worthless check.

Records indicate three checks, one at the North Trail Store in the town of Elcho, and two at Lotter’s BP in the town of Ainsworth were both returned in the summer of 2017 for insufficient funds, and Specht had failed to make payment.

He is not allowed any contact with the victim businesses as condition of bond.

All defendants will be back in court in the coming weeks.
