PORTAGE COUNTY, WI (WTAQ) - A Stevens Point man will spend about three-and-a-half years in prison for selling heroin, and throwing a handgun from his vehicle while being chased by police officers.

26-year-old Timothy Conway had pleaded no contest to a pair of 2011 cases in which he was convicted of possessing heroin with the intent to sell, running a drug trafficking place, possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, and bail jumping. Four other counts were dropped in plea deals.

Portage County Circuit Judge Thomas Flugaur credited Conway for time he spent in jail during his court cases – and he’ll have to spend 6 years under state supervision once he leaves prison. Both cases were from 2011.

Conway was sentenced this week for both.

In the latter incident, authorities said Conway refused to pull over during a traffic stop. And he tossed the gun during a chase because he wasn’t supposed to have the weapon due to prior convictions.

The judge also ordered treatment for drug and alcohol addictions. And if Conway gets a driver’s license in the future, the judge said he must use an ignition interlock, so that he’s sober when he starts a vehicle.
