Clayton County Attorney Alan Heavens recently reported numerous prison sentences imposed for crimes committed in Clayton County. Two had ties to Crawford County.

Tina Nicole Sepe, 31, of who has resided in Monona, McGregor and Prairie du Chien, received an additional five years in prison after being convicted of felony escape. The defendant was originally sentenced to serve a seven-year prison term for two counts of burglary. The court directed the defendant to turn herself in to the jail by a certain time, which she failed to do. Approximately five weeks later, the defendant was found hiding from authorities in a residence in rural Clayton County. After she was located by Clayton County sheriff’s deputies, the defendant was arrested and charged with escape of a felon. The maximum prison sentence of five years was imposed and ordered to be run consecutively to the initial prison term, increasing what would have been a seven-year prison sentence, had the defendant reported on time, to 12 years because she hid from authorities.

Nathan Daniel Slaughter, 30, of McGregor, was given a 17-year prison sentence after being convicted of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine and accessory after the fact. The conspiracy charge stemmed from a meth lab discovered by Clayton County sheriff’s deputies at the defendant’s residence in rural McGregor. The prosecution charged the defendant as a habitual offender due to the defendant’s prior drug felony convictions in Crawford County and Grant County. The habitual offender enhancement increased the maximum prison sentence from 10 years to 15 years with a five-year minimum. The defendant was also charged with accessory after the fact for his role in harboring, aiding and concealing a convicted felon on escape status with the intent to prevent her apprehension by law enforcement. The defendant was given the maximum sentence on both charges for total of 17 years in prison with a five-year mandatory minimum before parole eligibility.
