PORT WASHINGTON, Wis. (AP) — A father has been found guilty of reckless homicide in Ozaukee County for driving his daughter to buy the heroin that killed her.

Jurors deliberated less than a half-hour Wednesday before convicting 60-year-old Terry Hibbard, of Grafton. A criminal complaint says Hibbard drove 32-year-old Taralyn Hibbard to Milwaukee in July 2017 to buy $60 of heroin from a dealer.

Hibbard faces up to 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines when he’s sentenced Dec. 13. The dealer, Davian Poe, pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless homicide in February and was sentenced to eight years in prison.

  1. Wisconsin laws don’t protect addicts. Neither the dealer or father intended the woman to die. Wisconsin already has way too many people in prison.
