A husband and wife from Lac du Flambeau both face lengthy prison terms for distributing Oxycodone.
28 year old Andrew Meshigaud was sentenced to 12 and a half years and 25 year old Charlie Sunn Meshigaud to five years in federal prison by U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb. They both entered guilty please to the drug charges June 18. Both will have supervision after release from prison.
Andrew’s sentence was greater because he has two prior felony convictions for substantial battery, which classified him as a career offender. Andrew also started distributing oxycodone almost immediately following his release from state prison in February 2013. Charlie does not have any prior felony convictions.
From January 2013 to June 2013, the Meshigauds made numerous trips to Milwaukee to purchase Oxycodone. They wired over $50,000 to the source in Milwaukee during that time period. The Meshigauds, and others, then transported the Oxycodone back to Lac du Flambeau where it was distributed for profit.
The Meshigauds are the fourth and fifth defendants from Lac du Flambeau to be sentenced for Oxycodone distribution.
