MADISON (WSAU) One of the Wausau area's most notorious drug dealers was sentenced to 20-years in prison yesterday. 45-year-old Richard Crayton was found guilty of selling the heroine that a Tomahawk woman overdosed on two years ago.
Nicole Hedges was found dead at a womens shelter in Merrill. She got the drugs from Kevin Krugel, who's currently serving a year in jail on state charges. Krugel said that Crayton was his supplier.
During Crayton's trial there were several street-level drug dealers who said he was their source for drugs.
