Cassie Nygren booking charges

Rep. John Nygren

Rep. John Nygren

The daughter of a Northeast Wisconsin legislator is one of the two people arrested on charges of First Degree Reckless Homicide by Delivering Drugs. He faces 13 charges total, including 10 felonies.

Nygren's Facebook states that she is engaged to Gray.

The Brown County Sheriff's Office will hold a press conference on Thursday to provide more information on her arrest, along with the arrest of another person related to the crime. Delain would not say who overdosed. Investigators were still getting information to the district attorney's office, and the two were unlikely to be charged until today, Delain said.

Nygren had spent two years in state prison for heroin possession following a near-fatal overdose.

Nygren was previously convicted for Possessing Narcotic Drugs in 2010 and 2015.

She became the program's 16th defendant, and she participated successfully, attending status hearings from September 22, 2015, through March 2016, when she was sent to jail for a month for an undisclosed infraction of Drug Court rules. She was sentenced to probation, which was revoked in 2016, according to court records. Nygren's struggles with drugs have prompted her father, Republican state Rep. John Nygren, to sponsor numerous bills aimed at curbing opioid addiction over the years. The legislation is known as the "Hope Agenda" - with HOPE being an acronym for Heroin, Opioid Prevention and Education.

Nygren also extended condolences for the loss of life. In a statement, he said, "There are no words that we as a family can offer to give any real comfort for this tragic loss". To the family and friends of the victims of this tragedy, please know that you are in our prayers and that our hearts are heavy.

"This is a strong reminder of how fragile the road to recovery is", he wrote. We will continue to support and pray for her recovery. These stories are the motivating factor behind all our work in the legislature to fight this epidemic.

In an August 29 EagleHerald article, John Nygren said Cassie helped encourage the HOPE agenda. Walker said Nygren is a national leader on the opioid abuse issue.
