2 Men Sentenced By A Federal Judge For Heroin-Related Crimes
MADISON, Wisconsin (WMTV) – The Wisconsin Department of Justice announced Monday that Two men were sentenced to prison. By a federal judge for delivering fentanyl-laced heroin.
Keith L. Harris, 29, of Madison, sentenced to six years in federal prison on Friday, November 4. For distributing more than 40 grams of a substance containing heroin and fentanyl, according to officials.
On October 19, 2022, Derrell Bramlett, 31, of Chicago, was sentenced to five years in federal prison for the same offense.
According to the DOJ, both men pleaded guilty to their charges.
Between December 20, 2021, and January 11, 2022, the Madison Police Department tracked four fentanyl-laced heroin sales made by Harris using a confidential informant. His final transaction involved 50 grams of laced heroin near Fordem Avenue in Madison. Bramlett delivered the informant during this sale.
Harris was under active federal supervision during the monitored drug sales because he was released from prison after serving two years for possession of stolen firearms.
During Harris’ sentencing, U.S. District Judge William M. Conley remarked that he was oblivious to the dangers of the laced substance he was distributing.
