Sneaking drugs into jail can get you more time in the clink. It can also get someone killed.
That's the case with 25 year old Alexandra Lueck of Tomah. She was given five more months behind bars after a jail inmate died from snorting drugs she snuck in.
The woman pleaded no contest in Monroe County court to two counts in relation to delivering the drug Suboxone to 37 year old Adrianna Seroy back in January. Lueck snuck the drug back into the jail after being released for Huber privileges.
Seroy died on January 26th of what is now being called a mixed drug overdose. Suboxone is used to treat opiate addiction.

There scooping them up like hotcakes. They are Rose Bowl tickets and if you want one.....you better look deep into your bank account.
The Badgers said they had to scrap plans for a general public sale, because of a strong demand from season-ticket holders and donors to the Wisconsin athletic program. Wisconsin is playing in the “Grand-daddy” of the bowl games for the first time in 11 years. They’ll face Texas Christian on New Year’s Day in Pasadena California. If you are trying to find tickets, Dave Friedman of Friedman's Hobbit Travels says stay away from the internet. He says you have no idea who you are buying from and face to face transactions are always safer. He also says use a credit card when purchasing any form of travel, especially Badger Bowl tickets.
The face value for Rose Bowl tickets is $145.
