Man gets two years for heroin

August 09, 2012

A 47-year-old Lake Geneva man was sentenced July 31 to two years in a state prison after he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of delivering heroin.

Gerald W. Olcott, 1120 Wells St., Apt. 1, also was sentenced to two years of extended supervision.

As a condition of his supervision, he must pay a $500 fine and reimburse $200 in buy money.

If convicted of both counts, Olcott faces up to 18-1/2 years imprisonment and $35,000 in fines.

According to the criminal complaint:

The Walworth County Drug Unit worked with a confidential informant to purchase heroin on Aug. 5 and 29 from Olcott.

The informant used $200 in drug unit money to make the buy.

During both purchases, deputies with the drug unit watched the confidential informant meet with a man and come back out with heroin.

The drug was sent to the state crime lab.

The substance purchased from Olcott on Aug. 5 tested positive for Hydrocodone with Acetaminophen, a schedule III controlled substance.

The substance purchased on Aug. 29 tested positive for heroin.
