Welch guilty on heroin, cocaine charges

by

WAUSAU, WI (WSAU) -  One of the five people arrested in a raid of two Wausau drug houses last November is going to prison. 44-year-old Bernard N. Welch entered into a plea agreement Friday and was found guilty of manufacture with intent to deliver heroin and cocaine. He pled guilty to three charges while the remaining seven charges were dismissed but read into his sentence.

Welch was involved in drug operations on Cherry Street and on North 6th Avenue in Wausau.

Judge Jill Falstad sentenced Welch to three years in state prison followed by five years on extended supervision. He will also have to go through substance abuse counseling in prison.
