JUNEAU, Wis. - A Milwaukee drug dealer who hid crack cocaine in his body was sentenced this week to prison.
Octavious Hayes, 19, was sentenced Wednesday to three and a half years in state prison and four years of extended supervision in Dodge County, according to a release.
A judge said that probation was not appropriate because defendants selling drugs in the community require punishment.
Hayes was arrested after a search of a Beaver Dam home for possession of marijuana, officials said. During an interview, a Beaver Dam detective became suspicious that Hayes was hiding more drugs, and a search revealed he had 23 grams of crack cocaine hidden in his anus.
Hayes was charged and convicted of possession with intent to deliver crack cocaine, according to the release.
“The defendant is a drug dealer who came to Dodge County for no other purpose than to sell drugs,” a judge said. “Drug dealers from Milwaukee, Chicago and Madison are deciding to come to Beaver Dam to sell drugs. The defendant came here to line his pockets by furthering the misery of drug addiction in our community.”
