A 25-year-old Mosinee man charged with injecting a 19-year-old woman with heroin and abandoning her in a hospital parking lot when she began to overdose has pleaded not guilty.
According to court documents, on May 26 Jacob Gould injected the woman with the drug. The woman became unresponsive and that's when police say Gould and another man drove her vehicle to a Weston hospital and left her inside the car and left. One of the men called the hospital from a nearby gas station.
Gould and the other man, who has not been charged, were arrested during a traffic stop later that day.
Prosecutors say the woman remained in an induced coma for nearly five days following the overdose.
The sheriff's department says a search warrant was executed at Gould’s Mosinee residence to retrieve other evidence in relationship to the overdose case. According to a press release, during the search, detectives located a significant amount of marijuana and evidence that indicated large scale drug trafficking was taking place at the residence. They say more than two pounds of marijuana and more than $27,000 in cash was seized from the residence.
Gould's father, Jerald Gould, 56, and two brothers; Jerrod, 26, and Jeremy, 21 were charged with maintaining a drug trafficking place and possession of drug paraphernalia. The brothers were also charged with possession with intent to sell THC.
Investigators believe 100 pounds of marijuana at a minimum was moved through the residence.
Gould's mother, Marsha Mohr, 56, is charged with aiding a felon after she accused of deleting text messages from the alleged heroin overdose victim from her son's phone. Investigators say Jacob Gould placed a call to Mohr from the jail asking her to do so. Investigators say calls from the jail are recorded, a message plays before the call is placed stating so.
Jacob Gould remains behind bars on a $25,000 cash bond. He's charged with 1st degree recklessly endangering safety, two deliveries of heroin, felony possession of THC and obstructing an officer. He's expected to return to court September 8.
