ELKHORN — A 54-year-old Linn Township man faces criminal charges after allegedly providing prescription drugs to a 13-year-old girl.

Daniel B. Clemens, N1938 Linn Road, faces a felony charge of delivering a prescription drug. If convicted, he faces up to six years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines.

On Nov. 18, Deputy District Attorney Joshua Grube said he couldn't comment on the case until after the Dec. 9 preliminary hearing.

The charges against Clemens were filed Nov. 9. That same day, Clemens was arrested for second-offense drunken driving at the Walworth County Court House.

According to online court records, Clemens appeared in court Nov. 9 for a hearing on the drug case.

According to the bail jumping criminal complaint, a deputy smelled alcohol on Clemens, who admitted to driving to the court house. He had a PBT of 0.12.

If convicted of the bail jumping charge, he faces an additional six years imprisonment and $10,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint on the drug charge:

On Aug. 30, the Town of Linn Police Department interviewed a 13-year-old girl at the emergency room at the Lakeland Medical Center. The girl was receiving treatment after becoming ill from taking a prescription medication.

The girl told police her friend, Clemens, gave her the pill. The girl said Clemens told her the pill would make her feel really good after she took it. Based on the girl's description of the pill, police identified it as Buproprion Hydrochloride.
