Major drug charges against southern Wisconsin man leads court docket
space
The Racine man accused of possession with intent to deliver a variety of illegal narcotics was formally charged on Monday afternoon, one of the most serious cases on a very busy Langlade County Circuit Court docket.

Ky D. Martin, 25, faces four felony and two misdemeanor counts, all as a repeat offender and three as a second or subsequent offense. Martin is charged with possession with intent to deliver heroin, possession with intent to deliver cocaine, as well as possessions of narcotic drugs, THC, Amphetamine/LSD/Psilocin, and drug paraphernalia. All told the charges carry a maximum penalty of 102 years in prison and fines of $225,500.

On Thursday morning, the Forest County Drug Task Force received a tip that Martin would be trafficking a large quantity of drugs to the Mole Lake/Crandon area. The information was shared with the Langlade County Sheriffs Department and a deputy located his vehicle traveling on Highway 55 around 10 a.m.

The deputy observed Martin's vehicle to have excessively tinted windows, no front plate, and swerving multiple times. Martin was pulled over and the Forest County K9 unit soon responded and indicated the presence of controlled substances.

A pat down search of Martin uncovered a black sock concealed beneath his athletic shorts. The sock contained several clear bags with hard white and gray substances, all of which tested positive for cocaine or heroin.

A search of the vehicle located a cigar package containing a green leafy material that tested positive for THC, three colored pills later identified as MDMA, commonly known as Ecstasy, and a foil bindle containing a green pill later identified as Oxycodone Hydrochloride. There was also a lone cigar.

The cocaine seized weighed 41.15 grams, and the heroin 23.27 grams, with an estimated street value in excess of $15,000.

Martin's $10,000 cash bond from Friday was continued. He remains in the Langlade County jail and will appear in court again next Monday.

A variety of other accused citizens made initial appearances before Judge John Rhode on Monday.

Glen R. Phillips, 25, Crandon, pled not guilty to charges of battery, disorderly conduct, and resisting a police officer. He was ordered to a signature bond of $3,000 and ordered to have no contact with the alleged victims or their residences. For now the bond is irrelevant as Phillips is in custody in Forest County on separate charges.

Online court records show that just before 1 a.m. on June 29 Phillips was involved in a physical altercation at a South Superior Street address in the town of Antigo. Phillips is alleged to have put his foot on the neck of a person lying on the ground, then grabbing another person by the throat. When police responded, he charged at them, requiring the deployment of three tasers to be subdued. Phillips is a repeat offender, previously convicted of felony battery in October 2017.

Gale E. Feather, 58, Neopit, received a $2,000 signature bond on charges of battery or threat to a police officer, battery to an emergency rescue worker, and disorderly conduct. Feather is ordered to maintain absolute sobriety, not be present in any establishment with a class B liquor license, and have no contact with the Old Mill Tavern.

Feather's case stems from an incident at the Old Mill late on the night of Nov. 1. Deputies responded to a report of an intoxicated patron refusing to leave and found Feather bleeding while attempting to place the key in his car's ignition. When an ambulance arrived, Feather is alleged to have kicked a deputy, attempted to kick an EMT responder, and continued to struggle throughout treatment at Aspirus Langlade Hospital.

Brianna G. Grable, 17, Elton, faces one felony and six misdemeanor charges resulting from three run-ins with Antigo police in May. The felony charge is for giving misappropriate ID information in order to avoid penalty, while the misdemeanors are three counts each of resisting or obstructing an officer and possession of THC.

Grable was given a $2,000 signature bond and ordered not to use or possess controlled substances illegally. On three separate occasions, she is alleged to have either refused to identify herself or provided police with false information, and then found to have marijuana on or near her person. In a separate misdemeanor case, Grable is accused of using a town of Evergreen resident's credit card without permission, utilizing Facebook to transfer funds in excess of $1,000.

Crystal D. Rice, 35, Deerbrook, posted a $1,000 cash bond in response to possession charges of meth, THC and drug paraphernalia, resulting from a traffic stop in the town of Upham on Oct. 16. The deputy observed marijuana shake in plain view on the passenger seat and a search uncovered two small bags of marijuana as well as pipes with meth and THC residue.

Rice is also charged with bail jumping as she was out on bond from a Sept. 2016 meth possession case.

Jennifer J. Rockman, 31, Keshena, faces a single misdemeanor count of retail theft valued under $500. She is accused of concealing items in a cart and leaving the Antigo Wal-Mart store on Oct. 29. After fleeing on foot, she was located with items valuing $95 in her purse.

Rockman is free on a $1,000 signature bond and ordered to have no contact with the store.

Ethan A. Reimer, 19, Bryant, is also free on a $1,000 signature bond on a single count of possession of drug paraphernalia as a repeater. While taking Reimer into custody at his home on probation violations, an agent discovered a homemade pipe that tested positive for THC residue.

Reimer is under orders not to use or possess controlled substances illegally. He was previously charged with battery and resisting or obstructing an officer in August.

Robert L. Theisen, 31, Deerbrook, is charged with disorderly conduct with a domestic abuse modifier. Judge Rhode ordered Theisen a $1,000 signature bond and to have no contact with the alleged victim. He is accused of throwing a remote control at the victim's head and breaking a mirror at his residence in the town of Upham on Sept. 16.

Mark E. Mishler, 53, Deerbrook, received an $850 cash bond on a charge of third offense operating while intoxicated. He is ordered not to consume alcohol nor be present in any establishment with a Class B liquor license. Mishler was not present in court but was represented by counsel, and ordered to sign the bond by Friday.

Mishler was stopped for straddling traffic lanes on Oct. 13 at 1:15 a.m. on Neva Road near Farwell Avenue. He failed field sobriety tests and blew a .145 preliminary breath test. Mishler's previous OWI convictions were in July 1991 and April 2001.

April A. Hohensee, 31, Antigo, was ordered a $500 signature bond on a single count of possession of controlled substances. She was the subject of a traffic stop on October 2 on Fifth Avenue near Fulton Street and found in possession of a suboxone strip, a schedule III narcotic. Hohensee claimed to have a prescription for the strip but was not able to provide it. She is ordered not to use controlled substances while on bond.

Brooklyn M. West, 19, Antigo, faces a charge of retail theft valued under $500. She was captured on surveillance video leaving the Antigo Wal-Mart store after concealing bottles of vodka and wine in a purse on Sept. 27. The theft was discovered after West posted to Facebook that she had “finessed Wal-Mart.” She is free on a $500 signature bond with an order to have no contact with the store.

Alvin J. Temple, 48, Antigo, made his initial appearance before Judge Rhode mere hours after a 4 a.m. arrest. Temple is charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, as well as disorderly conduct of the domestic abuse variety. He was captured by police after causing a disturbance and climbing on the side of a Lincoln Street residence.

Temple was ordered to a $500 signature bond with conditions of no use of controlled substances and not to have any contact with the alleged victim. Rhode noted Temple's extensive ties to the community, including steady employment of nearly 20 years, in setting the bond significantly lower than is typical of methamphetamine cases.
