A Plymouth man with previous drug convictions will spend seven years in prison for selling heroin to an informant in Eau Claire.

Miquel D. Brown, 42, was sentenced recently in Eau Claire County Court to felony counts of heroin delivery, battery to a law enforcement officer and possession of heroin with intent to deliver.

Judge Jon Theisen ordered Brown to spend five years on extended supervision following his release from prison.

As conditions of supervision, Brown cannot associate with people engaging in the sale of illegal drugs.

According to the criminal complaint:

A confidential informant told police Brown was involved with selling methamphetamine and heroin and an officer then arranged for a controlled purchase of heroin on Feb. 21, 2017.

A second controlled buy of heroin was made with Brown and an informant two days later.

Brown struck an officer while he was being arrested.

Brown was prosecuted as a repeat offender. He was convicted of felony counts of possession of methamphetamine and possession of cocaine with intent to deliver in February 2016 and August 2002, respectively, in Eau Claire County.
