Beaver Dam Woman Sentenced To Prison On Drug Charge After Violating Probation

(Beaver Dam) A Beaver Dam woman convicted on a drug charge in 2018 was sentenced Tuesday to four years in prison after violating her probation. Gidget Wheeler was originally placed on probation for three years after entering a no contest plea to a felony count of Manufacturing and Delivering Cocaine. In March, she was similarly charged with two additional counts. The Dodge County Drug Task Force was investigating a possible drug dealer in Beaver Dam in September of 2017. Wheeler sold cocaine to a confidential informant on two separate occasions. A month later, authorities stopped a vehicle due to a suspended license. While another officer was checking the driver’s identification, a K9 hit on two locations of the car indicating that there were drugs located inside the vehicle. Wheeler, who was the driver, claimed that seven grams of cocaine had been shoved into her pants by the passenger. All three occupants of the vehicle were taken into custody for either possession of illegal drugs, violating bond conditions or probation violations. The 48-year-old was also placed on extended supervision for four years.
