More Guilty Pleas To Oxycodone Distribution in LDF
More guilty pleas in federal court to Oxycodone distribution in Lac du Flambeau.
U.S. Attorney John Vaudreuil announced pleas from 25 year old Charlie Sunn Meshigaud and 27 year old Andrew Meshigaud, a husband and spouse. They pled guilty in federal court in Madison to conspiring to possess Oxycodone with intent to distribute.
Officials say from January to June 2013, the Meshigauds made numerous trips to Milwaukee to purchase Oxycodone. More than $50,000 was wired to their source in Milwaukee. The Meshigauds and others then transported the Oxycodone back to Lac du Flambeau where it was distributed for profit.
Judge Barbara Crabb scheduled sentencing for the Meshigauds on August 22. They both face a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison.
The charges resulted from an investigation conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation; Lac du Flambeau Police Department; and the Vilas and Oneida County Sheriffs' Departments.
The pleas follow other guilty pleas and sentencing for Oxycodone distribution in Lac du Flambeau.
