WASHBURN COUNTY -- The Court has accepted Jeremy Englund’s plea of guilty to a reduced charge in an August 2020 Spooner, WI drug case involving a nearly fatal heroin overdose.

Charges were filed against Englund following the nearly-fatal overdose that occurred at Englund’s residence in Spooner, WI, and law enforcement’s subsequent investigation.

Spooner Police Department Officers responded to Englund’s residence on August 3, 2020, regarding a report of an unresponsive male, later identified as Dustin Martin, of Cumberland, WI. After 3 doses of Narcan, Martin opened his eyes and began breathing, allegedly stating that he had used heroin. Authorities located two used syringes and a baggie containing methamphetamine in Martin’s pockets. He was transported for medical care.

During a search of Englund’s residence, Officers discovered a digital scale and multiple containers holding marijuana as well as numerous smoking devices (many of which tested positive for either marijuana or methamphetamine) including glass pipes, metal pipes, straws, rubber tubing, and a bong. Officers also found multiple used syringes and a dozen used/empty “Narcan” nasal sprays.

Englund was charged with Class I Felony Maintaining a Drug Trafficking Place; Class I Felony Possession of Tetrahydrocannabinols - 2nd & Subsequent; and Misdemeanor Possession of Drug Paraphernalia.

Jeremy Englund

Online circuit court records show that Englund appeared for a recent court hearing regarding his charges and the Hon. Angeline E. Winton accepted Englund’s plea of guilty to an amended charge of Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine. He also pleaded guilty to a charge of Operating While Intoxicated 1st Offense that was filed against him following an incident in August 2021. The remaining charges filed against Englund were dismissed but read in.

Englund received an imposed and stayed sentence with 3 years of probation for his felony conviction. If probation should be revoked, Englund will face 1.5 years of initial confinement in Wisconsin State Parison followed by 2 years of Extended Supervision.

Englund was ordered to pay over $1,300 in costs and fees relating to his convictions and complete an AODA assessment.

Dustin Martin

Martin is charged with Class I Felony Possession of Methamphetamine. Online circuit court records show that Martin failed to appear at a scheduled court hearing in May 2022, and a warrant for his arrest was issued and remains active.

Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
