Sun Prairie man convicted of selling fentanyl-laced heroin sentenced to 5 years, 6 months in federal prison
MADISON, Wis. — Cortez Jackson, 39, Sun Prairie, was sentenced to prison for conspiracy to distribute heroin, fentanyl and cocaine, authorities said Friday.
Jackson pleaded guilty to the charges in November, according to a news release from the Western District of Wisconsin U.S. Attorney Scott C. Blader’s office.
Jackson was responsible for distributing a large amount of heroin, some laced with fentanyl, during a six-month period in the Madison area, the release said.
Van Willaimson, who authorities say was the leader of the conspiracy, was sentenced to eight years in federal prison in March.
