Milwaukee, Apr 26 (IBNS) John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that a 30-year-old man named Kelvin Haley of Beloit, Wisconsin, was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 42 months' imprisonment and six years of supervised release to follow for distribution of heroin in August through September of 2012.

On January 29, 2013 Haley pleaded guilty to a single count of heroin delivery that occurred on August 27, 2012.

Haley was sentenced on Wednesday based not only upon his delivery of heroin on nine occasions from August through September but also evidence that he delivered crack cocaine on three occasions in the spring of 2012, all while he was on probation for other offenses.

The charge against Kelvin Haley was the result of an investigation conducted by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, which consists of the Beloit Police Department, Rock County Sheriff's Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Robert A. Anderson.
