Around the Winnebago courthouse: meth cases, eluding police, passing out at Walmart parking lot

By Miles Maguire
A 35-year-old Oshkosh woman, who according to court papers “allows her 16-year-old son to sell marijuana, but not harder drugs,” pleaded guilty Aug. 30 to a charge of dealing methamphetamine from a house on West 8th Avenue.

Ivy M. Hill, who had seven other charges dismissed but read into the record, was sentenced to 30 days in jail with work release. She was also given three years’ probation and ordered to pay back as much as $1,245 in buy money that was used in undercover drug deals. (The exact amount will depend on whether previously convicted codefendants contribute to the reimbursement.)

According to court documents, Hill arranged for an undercover officer to buy 1.4 grams of meth on Oct. 8, another 3.87 grams of meth on Oct. 10, 3.9 grams of meth on Oct. 16, and 5.5 grams of meth of Oct. 24. On Oct. 19, court papers state, Hill provided three ecstasy pills and six baggies of marijuana on consignment to an undercover officer.

Hill was represented by Matthew Goldin. Stephanie Stauber appeared for the state before Judge Teresa Basiliere.

A 29-year-old Oshkosh man who ran two stop signs on Division Street “at a high rate of speed” and then blasted out of the parking lot behind the Magnet Bar when confronted by an officer pleaded guilty Aug. 26 to a charge of using a vehicle to elude police.

Andrew D. Erdmann, who lives in the 500 block of Washington Avenue, “appeared to be heavily intoxicated or under the influence of something” when stopped Dec. 17, according to court papers. For safety reasons, Oshkosh police did not attempt to pursue him. He was driving a white Ford F150 and was later apprehended by Neenah police.

Judge Karen Seifert gave Erdmann 12 months of probation, and a 90-day jail sentence was stayed. Erdmann was represented by Nila Robinson. Anthony Prekop appeared for the state.

A 48-year-old Oshkosh man who stopped paying child support in 2013 was sentenced Aug. 26 to 60 days in jail with work release.

Dennis E. Veach, of Sherman Road, pleaded no contest in July to a criminal complaint that said he was $26,971 in arrears as of June 2018.

Veach appeared before Judge Barbara Key. He was represented by Steven Smits, and Amanda Nash represented the state.

A 28-year-old Ripon man who was found passed out in a car at Walmart on Washburn Street pleaded no contest Aug. 28 to a charge of methamphetamine possession.

When police roused him, Devon B. Jansen “did not have any idea what time of day it was, or how he had gotten to Walmart,” police said in a criminal complaint.

Police found a scale, pills and six grams of meth in various vents in Jansen’s car, according to court documents. Police said Jansen first denied there were any drugs in his car. But after he was told what had been located, Jansen told police, “Oh, I forgot that was in there.”

Judge Karen L. Seifert imposed and stayed a 60-day jail term conditioned on counseling and attendance at Alcoholics Anonymous. A second charge of possession of a controlled substance was dismissed but read into the record. Ryan Ulrich represented Jansen, and Adam Levin appeared for the state.
