A Necedah man faces drug charges for selling heroin to an undercover officer and confidential informant.

Karl Binter, 41, is charged with delivery of schedule II narcotics. He faces up to fifteen years imprisonment for the charge.

According to the criminal complaint:

An undercover officer met with Binter on June 7 to purchase 0.3 grams of heroin. The officer was accompanied by a confidential informant during the investigation.

The undercover officer and informant drove to a predetermined location set by the informant and a woman working with Binter. The woman told the informant over the phone she could not access transportation at the time and asked instead to meet her and Binter near Milwaukee Street near the church in Mauston.

Upon arriving at the Milwaukee Street address, Binter entered the vehicle with the undercover officer and informant. An officer monitoring the vehicle noted he recognized Binter from previous professional contacts. A short time later, Binter exited the vehicle and met with the undercover officer at a predetermined location. It was at this time Binter supplied the officer with 0.3 grams of heroin.

The Juneau County Sheriff’s Office later found the substance was identified to have the presence of Fentanyl.

Binter was released on a signature bond of $10,000 on Dec. 14. His initial appearance in court is scheduled for Jan. 24 at the Juneau County Justice Center.
