Judge departs from prosecutor’s recommendation after family of overdose victim calls for harsher sentence

    Overcome by emotion but articulate, relatives and friends of Tyler Bares made their case in an Ozaukee County courtroom Monday.

    The five-year prison sentence recommended by prosecutors, they said, was not nearly enough of a punishment for Mack E. Scott, the  Milwaukee drug dealer who sold the 26-year-old Fredonia man a deadly dose of heroin and cocaine in May 2013.

    “Tyler was a really great person who made a really bad decision, and he paid the ultimate price,” Bares’ mother Tracy Jeske told Judge Paul Malloy. “Now it’s time for Mack Scott to pay the price.”

    Bares, a 2005 graduate of Ozaukee High School, died from a combination of heroin, cocaine and alcohol on May 9.

    “Mack Scott sentenced me to a lifetime of grief,” Jeske said. “This (drug dealing) is an epidemic, and a harsh sentence is the first step in letting people know this won’t be tolerated.”
