A Beloit woman who delivered fentanyl to a town of Milton man that later caused him to overdose pleaded guilty Wednesday in Rock County Court to two felony charges as part of a plea agreement.

Sara N. Carns, 31, of 1224 Townline Road, pleaded guilty to first-degree recklessly endangering safety and manufacturing/delivering schedule I or II narcotics. Misdemeanors of possession of cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, battery, disorderly conduct and bail jumping were dismissed and read in.

As part of the deal, Carns must attend drug court. Failing the program would result in her being sentenced for the two felonies, said her attorney, Jason Sanders.

Judge Michael Haakenson said he was encouraged by Carns’ case and told her to be honest in drug court.

“It’s not the easiest program in the world, but if you work with it, it can change your life,” he said.

On Sept. 29, Rock County sheriff’s deputies responded to a town of Milton home where a woman had broken down a door to find a man unresponsive on the floor. The woman administered three doses of Narcan, and the man was taken to Mercy Hospital and Trauma Center in Janesville.

The man said he bought the heroin, which he had been using on and off for three years, from Carns.
