An Eau Claire man who was sentenced to four years in prison after he gave illegal drugs to a Chippewa Falls man in 2016 — who later died from using them — will now serve more than six months in jail on a conviction of possessing cocaine with the intent to deliver.
Dustin M. Leshock, 31, 3008 33rd Ave., pleaded guilty in January in Chippewa County Court to the cocaine charge, as well as OWI (second offense).
On Wednesday, Judge Steve Gibbs ordered Leshock to serve an eight-month jail sentence on the latest conviction. However, Gibbs gave Leshock 47 days credit for time already served. Gibbs also ordered Leshock to pay $1,983 in court costs and fines.
According to police reports and court records, Leshock sold one-tenth of a gram of heroin to 19-year-old Allyson K. Mayer on Nov. 28, 2016, for $45 at a business in Lake Hallie. Mayer shared the drug with her boyfriend, 18-year-old Isaac C. Repetto, later that evening at a home in Chippewa Falls.
Repetto and Mayer went to bed; when she woke up the morning of Nov. 29, Repetto was dead. Mayer attempted to revive Repetto by giving him CPR. She also gave him a shot of Narcan, a chemical that is used to stabilize someone who is overdosing. When searching the scene, officers found unused syringes and tie-offs used in drugs.
Leshock pleaded guilty in April 2017 to manufacturing and delivering of schedule I and II narcotics and second-degree recklessly endangering safety. In August 2017, Judge James Isaacson sentenced Leshock to four years in prison and four years of extended supervision. Leshock was given credit for 253 days already served.
However, court records show that Leshock completed the “Wisconsin Substance Abuse Program” at the Stanley Correctional Institution on Jan. 18, 2019, and that his remaining two-year prison sentence would be converted to extended supervision, and he was released from the Department of Corrections Feb. 4, 2019.
Leshock was arrested April 6, 2019 — about two months after he was released from prison.
According to the new criminal complaint, Chippewa Falls police stopped Leshock’s vehicle because he was driving with expired plates. Leshock failed a field sobriety test. While searching his car, officers found 5.7 grams of cocaine in baggies, as well as a meth pipe.
Leshock previously told Judge Steve Cray that he has “been battling addiction for many, many years,” and wanted to enter rehabilitation.
