Eau Claire man sentenced to 18 years on meth charge

Madison (WQOW) – An Eau Claire man will spend the next 18 years behind bars for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute.

Jason Ressel, 43, of Eau Claire pleaded guilty to the charge on May 17, 2018.

On September 27, 2017, officers arrested Ressel at his parole officer’s office. Officers searched his car and found 134.4 grams of meth in a cylinder attached to the car frame.

That same day, officers searched Ressel’s house. There, they found 525.9 grams of meth, 9.2 grams of marijuana, 2.4 grams of cocaine, 0.4 grams of crack cocaine and $2,952.

Based on his three prior felony drug convictions and his extensive criminal history, Judge Peterson concluded Ressel was a career offender. Judge Peterson also said that because Ressel was resistant to supervision and had not been readily amenable to treatment opportunities in the past, the public needed protection from Ressel for a long time.
