MADISON, Wis.(WSAU) -- Two more people have been sentenced for selling drugs on the Lac du Flambeau tribal lands. 28-year-old Andrew Meshigaud and his 25-year-old wife Charlie Sunn Meshigaud will both be going to prison for illegal distribution of Oxycodone. They pled guilty to the charges on June 18th.
Andrew will spend 151 months, or 12 and a half years in federal prison. Charlie will be in federal prison for 60 months, or 5 years. They will both have three more years of supervised release when they get out.
Investigators found that the Meshigauds made numerous trips to Milwaukee to purchase several thousand 30 mg pills of Oxycodone between January and June of 2013. They, and others at their request, 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. On May 30, 2014, Brandon Vetterneck was sentenced to 40 months in prison. On June 10, 2014, Lois Vetterneck to a one-year term of probation. On July 15, 2014, Derek Armstrong was sentenced to 24 months in prison.
The charge against the Meshigauds was the result of an investigation conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation; the Lac du Flambeau Police Department; and the Vilas and Oneida County Sheriffs' Departments.
