The North Central Drug Enforcement Group Task Force (NORDEG) and the Oneida County sheriff's office arrested two Rhinelander residents Sept. 22 on drug and child neglect charges.

Neil R. Jaeger, 32, has been charged with possession of methamphetamine, repeater (Class I felony); possession of narcotic drugs, repeater (Class I felony); and possession of drug paraphernalia, repeater (Class G felony), in addition to possession of cocaine, repeater; child neglect, repeater; and possession of drug paraphernalia, repeater, all of which are misdemeanors.

Butler, 34, was charged with possession of methamphetamine, second and subsequent offense; possession of narcotic drugs, second and subsequent offense; and possession of drug paraphernalia (Class G felony), in addition to the misdemeanor charges of possession of cocaine, second and subsequent offense; child neglect and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the criminal complaint, officers were surveying the couple's residence prior to executing a search warrant when they noticed Butler leave the home. They followed her, made a traffic stop and detained her, the complaint states.

Back at the house, officers executed the search warrant. Jaeger complied with officers' commands and was taken into custody.

According to the complaint, officers found several items of drug paraphernalia, including tinfoil with methamphetamine residue, a scale with cocaine residue, an oxycodone hydrocodone pill, among other things, during the search. Some items were located in reach of young children, the complaint states.

Children ages 17, 14, 4 and 2 reside at the residence.

According to online court records, Jaeger and Butler made adjourned initial appearances in Oneida County Circuit Court Friday. Butler had a preliminary hearing scheduled for Oct. 19 while Jaeger's case was postponed until Oct. 30 to allow time for new counsel to be appointed.

If convicted, the charges of possession of methamphetamine and possession of narcotic drugs, carry a maximum prison time of three years and six months, and a fine of no more than $10,000. With the repeater charge, the maximum term of imprisonment may be increased to no more than two years.
