MADISON, Wis. (WSAU) -- A husband and wife pleaded guilty to drug charges in U.S. District Court Wednesday. 25-year-old Charlie Sunn Meshigaud and 27-year-old Andrew Meshigaud of Lac du Flambeau admitted possessing Oxycodone with intent to distribute the drug.

U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb has scheduled a sentencing hearing for both of them on August 22nd. They both face up to 20 years in federal prison.
