Wednesday court sentences include multiple meth cases
space
A Rhinelander woman found with methamphetamine and a slew of drug paraphernalia in a vehicle parked behind a closed Antigo business in September of 2017, was sentenced to prison in Langlade County Court Wednesday.

Samantha K. Kronberger, 29, pled no contest to a charge of possession of meth as a repeat offender, while a drug paraphernalia charge was dismissed but read in as part of a plea deal with the state.

Kronberger was ordered to serve a three year prison term, consisting of one year initial confinement and two years of extended supervision. In addition, she was fined court costs, must undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, maintain absolute sobriety, full-time employment, and undergo any counseling deemed necessary.

According to online court records, an officer on patrol observed a vehicle behind the closed Antigo business at 2:44 a.m. on Sept. 17, 2017. Kronberger was behind the wheel, with a male in the passenger seat. She initially told authorities she was lost and trying to get to Rhinelander.

Permission was given to search the vehicle and a cigarette wrapper containing meth was allegedly found inside. A number of items consistent with intravenous drug use were also located.

Both Kronberger and her male companion denied knowledge of the meth, which totaled 1.6 grams.

Other sentences handed down during a busy Wednesday court session included;

â€Matthew J. Milne, 42, Wausau, who was sentenced after his probation was revoked in a 2016 drug case.

Milne had originally pled contest to a possession of meth as a repeater charge, but failed to successfully complete the terms of his probation. He was sentenced to four years in prison, including one year initial confinement and three years of extended supervision.

It will run concurrent to any sentence he may currently be serving.

Online records indicate police encountered Milne while investigating an anonymous drug complaint at a north-side Antigo hotel in March of 2016.

Milne reportedly had an item of drug paraphernalia in plain view on his person, and a search turned up a plastic baggie with meth in his pants' pocket. He further turned over a case containing two additional bags of meth.

â€Christine E. Pelky, 28, 836 1/2 Fifth Ave., pled no contest to possession of meth charge, while two related charges were dismissed, but read in as part of a plea deal.

Pelky was ordered to a three year probation term, which includes the payment of court costs, a drug and alcohol assessment at the discretion of her probation agent, absolute sobriety, any counseling deemed necessary and maintaining full-time employment.

Records show a search was conducted of a Fifth Avenue apartment occupied by Pelky on March 9, after authorities received information of drug activity at the home.

A total of six jewel bags of meth were found, along with two pipes, one containing meth residue. Over 200 used syringes were also allegedly in the residence.

â€Jeffrey A. Warbelton, 61, Pelican Lake, reached a plea deal with prosecutors in a case of marijuana possession. Warbelton pled no contest to a felony charge of possession of THC, second or subsequent offense, while a related drug paraphernalia count was dismissed, but read in.

He was sentenced to 30 days in jail with Huber privileges and fined court costs.

Online accounts show Warbelton was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by a Sheriff's deputy in the Elcho area on June 6, 2017. A search of the vehicle allegedly turned up three separate containers of marijuana, along with a pipe which contained residue of the substance.

Warbelton reportedly claimed ownership of the items.

â€Manuel H. Sanchez, 31, Birnamwood, pled guilty to a second offense operating while intoxicated charge, while two related counts were dismissed.

Sanchez was accused of being behind the wheel of a vehicle which crashed in the town of Norwood in March of 2017. A strong odor of intoxicants was noted and he failed field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test at the scene yielded a blood alcohol level of .167, over twice the legal limit for driving.

Sanchez was fined $1,760 plus court costs, ordered to serve a 60 day jail term with Huber privileges, had his driving privileges revoked for 14 months, must install an interlock ignition device on his vehicle for 14 months, undergo a drug and alcohol assessment, and establish a driver safety plan.

â€Alfredso Landa Lagunes, 25, Bryant, entered a guilty plea to a lone charge of resisting/obstructing an officer and was fined $100 plus court costs.

The charge relates to a New Year's Day incident in which a deputy found an abandoned vehicle in the median of the roadway near Highway 45 and County Road N. The vehicle appeared to have been involved in a crash.

Landa Lagunes and two other males were soon found in the vicinity, but all insisted another unidentified male had been driving.
