Former Waukesha Man Pleads Guilty in Len Bias Case

Ian Michael Jeske, 27, may serve up to 40 years in prison for the 2011 overdose death of a Pewaukee man.

A former Waukesha man could be headed to prison for selling a prescription pill to a Pewaukee man who later overdosed and died.

Ian Michael Jeske, 27, of New Berlin, plead guilty Thursday to one count of first-degree reckless homicide by delivery of drugs for the 2011 overdose death of David A. Gapinski. According to online court records, no recommendation has been given prior to sentencing, but Jeske could face up to 40 years in prison and $100,000 in fines under the charge.

In January 2011, Jeske sold Oxycodone to Gapinski after they went to a Milwaukee gas station and met another person where Jeske obtained the pills. Gapinski and another person purchased pills from Jeske, who made a $10 profit off the deal.

Gapinski overdosed and died later that night inside his apartment in the 300 block of Morris Street.

Jeske is the third person from Waukesha charged under the state’s Len Bias law within the past year. .

Waukesha police are also currently investigating another possible case for a Waukesha man who fatally overdosed on heroin on Jan. 20.

Jeske will be sentenced in Milwaukee County Circuit Court on April 20.
