CHIPPEWA FALLS — An Eau Claire man who was sentenced to four years in prison after he gave drugs to a Chippewa Falls man who later died from using them has now been charged with possessing cocaine with intent to deliver.

Dustin M. Leshock, 30, 3008 33rd Ave., was charged in Chippewa County Court last week with the drug charge, as well as OWI-first offense. He will return to court June 25.

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 with 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 Leshock completed the Wisconsin Substance Abuse Program on Jan. 18 and that his remaining prison sentence would be converted to extended supervision, and he was released.

Leshock was arrested April 6 — less than three months after he was released from prison. He was released on a signature bond.

According to the criminal complaint filed in Chippewa County Court, Chippewa Falls police stopped his 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 plastic bags, as well as a meth pipe.

Leshock previously told Chippewa County Judge Steve Cray that he has “been battling addiction for many, many years” and wanted to enter rehabilitation.
