Ivy C. Zastrow-Hanson, 20, of Mosinee. Jan. 14, 2022: First-degree recklessly endangering safety, manufacturing or delivering heroin, possession of narcotic drugs, possession of amphetamine/LSD/Psilocin, possession of THC, possession of drug paraphernalia

A 20-year-old woman who was given a withheld sentence on burglary charges in September is now accused of selling drugs to a Wausau man who overdosed and nearly died.

Ivy C. Zastrow-Hanson, of Mosinee, faces charges of first-degree recklessly endangering safety, manufacturing or delivering heroin, possession of narcotic drugs and other related offenses in a case filed Jan. 14 in Marathon County Circuit Court. Police say Zastrow-Hanson was arrested the morning of Jan. 12 at an east-side tavern following an investigation.

The overdose was reported at about 6:30 p.m. Jan. 11 at a home in the 700 block of Nina Avenue in Wausau. Police say the man who overdosed was given three doses of Narcan by his girlfriend before rescue crews and officers arrived. The man was transported to Aspirus Wausau Hospital, where he was treated and questioned.

Investigators traced the drugs to Zastrow-Hanson.

Court records show Zastrow-Hanson was charged in four separate cases in 2021 with charges of forgery, theft, burglary, possession of methamphetamine, possession of an illegally obtained prescription, resisting or obstructing an officer and others. As part of a plea deal reached in September, all but the burglary charge was dismissed and Circuit Judge Suzanne O’Neill ordered a withheld sentence for Zastrow-Hanson and ordered her to spend four years on probation, maintain absolute sobriety from controlled substances and undergo AODA treatment.

A withheld sentence means a person convicted of a crime is placed on probation and no prison sentence is assessed. If probation is revoked, defendants still face the same maximum penalty for the charge they pleaded guilty to. That means Zastrow-Hanson could face additional penalties in the 2021 burglary case.

During an initial appearance last week Circuit Judge Scott Corbett ordered Zastrow-Hanson held on a $20,000 cash bond. She remains behind bars and a preliminary hearing is set for Jan. 24.
