SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — A plea agreement in a fatal heroin overdose case in Sheboygan County could lead to charges in a large drug distribution operation.
Monica Sanchez pleaded no contest to first-degree reckless homicide and distributing heroin Thursday. Sanchez provided the heroin that killed William Widucki at his Sheboygan apartment last December.
Sheboygan County District Attorney Joe DeCecco (deh-CHEK'-oh) will recommend Sanchez serve nine months in jail and five years of probation if she testifies against her Chicago area drug supplier and 20 other people involved in a heroin distribution ring. Sheboygan Press Media (http://shebpr.es/1jCzTf6 ) says the 26-year-old Sanchez could have faced 50 years in prison on the charges against her.
