Goll sentenced to prison in reckless homicide by heroin delivery case

A Rhinelander man convicted of second degree reckless homicide for delivering the heroin that led to the death of a 26-year-old man has been sentenced to prison in Vilas County Circuit Court.

Chad Goll was sentenced Monday to four years incarceration and five years extended supervision. He was initially charged with first degree reckless homicide, three counts manufacture/deliver heroin and possession with intent to deliver heroin, all felonies, as well as misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia.

The charges were filed last March after Daniel Norton, 26, Eagle River, died following a heroin overdose. The death investigation connected the drug delivery that killed him to Goll.

Following a plea agreement, the first degree reckless homicide charge was changed to second degree reckless homicide. Goll pled no contest. The remaining counts were dismissed and read into the record for sentencing. A pre-sentence investigation followed Monday's final hearing in the case.

A statement by Mildred Norton, family member of the victim, was read by Vilas County district attorney Martha Milanowski. Goll also made a statement.

Judge Neal A. Nielsen then imposed a nine-year prison sentence, including four years' confinement and five years' extended supervision. Goll will be given credit for 360 days time served.

Goll also must pay $500 restitution to Mildred Norton and any further costs incurred by counseling in addition to more than $500 in court costs. He was additionally ordered to drug and alcohol counseling, any other counseling deemed appropriate, must maintain sobriety, not possess or consume intoxicants, not enter taverns, gain full-time employment and not contact the victim's family except to write an apology which is to be first sent to the district attorney.

In Oneida County, Goll still faces felony charges of possession of methamphetamine and misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a controlled substance.
