A convicted arsonist who avoided federal prison five years ago by helping officials lock up fellow Earth Liberation Front activists is headed to state prison for selling heroin.

Jacob Jere­miah “Jake” Ferguson, 38, was sentenced Monday to nearly five years in prison after pleading guilty to manufacturing, possessing and selling heroin; possessing cocaine; and neglecting and endangering his 4-year-old daughter in the process.

County prosecutor JoAnn Miller told Lane County Circuit Judge Charles Zennaché that the latter charges reflect Ferguson’s allowing the girl to stay in his south Eugene residence while drugs were being manufactured and dealt there.

Miller said police found within the child’s “easy access” a toolbox with pull-out drawers “loaded with syringes.”

  1. oh…such fun he shall have in prison, with all the new playmates awaiting his rat-ass…he justified his cowardice in testifying against his former comrades by saying he wanted to spare his son the sad experience of having a father in prison, but what he really wanted was to spare himself the sad experience of not having heroin…what a worthless bag of shit…here’s hoping he doesn’t survive prison!
