FOND DU LAC, Wis. (WFRV)- On Tuesday, August 17, the Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric Toney announced the sentencing of David Bresser.

Bresser was convicted in June of this year for an overdose death in Fond du Lac, and drug delivery in Ripon dating back to 2020.

According to statements made by the D.A.’s office, Bresser faces 8 years of jail time, along with 4 years of extended supervision for involvement in delivering methamphetamine. Those deliveries caused the death of one person back in April of 2020.

Along with this sentencing, Bresser also received consecutive sentencing of three years of initial time behind bars and three more years of extended supervision. Meaning Bresser will face 11 years of initial imprisonment, and 7 years of extended supervision. This is due to an unrelated drug delivery of fentanyl occurring in August of 2020 in Ripon.

D.A. Toney expressed his condolences to the families of the overdose victim, explaining there were too many lost to overdose in 2020. He expressed his dedication to prosecuting individuals involved in drug dealings. Saying, “we will continue to partner with law enforcement to aggressively prosecute those that poison our community by dealing drugs..”
