Proctor man sentenced for cocaine sales


A Proctor man will spend 90 days in jail for selling crack cocaine in Superior.

Robert Alan Dixon, 51, pleaded no contest Sept. 22 in Douglas County Circuit Court to one count deliver crack cocaine; two additional counts of deliver crack cocaine were dismissed, but read in for sentencing.

Dixon was sentenced to three years of probation and 90 days jail with Huber work release. He was also ordered to maintain absolute sobriety, submit to random urinalysis and pay a $200 fine and court costs.

According to the criminal complaint:

Members of the Lake Superior Drug and Violent Crime Task Force conducted controlled purchases of crack cocaine from Dixon in February and March.

In each instance, Dixon took the buyer's money, drove to the home of Kenneth Lemar Childs in the 1900 block of Baxter Avenue in Superior, purchased the cocaine and brought it to the buyer.

Childs, 35, faces three counts deliver cocaine.

When questioned by investigators, Dixon admitted to being a meth user and "middling" crack cocaine deals from Childs, who is also known by the street name "B." Childs admitted to authorities that he sold Dixon cocaine.

A December jury trial has been set for Childs. His next court appearance is Oct. 27.
