Sheboygan Resident Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for herion Distribution

United States Attorney James L. Santelle announced today that United States District Judge Lynn Adelman sentenced Osvaldo Reyes (age: 32) of Sheboygan to ten years in prison for distribution of heroin in Sheboygan and the surrounding areas.  Reyes, who pled guilty to these charges, was indicted on March 12, 2013.

According to the plea agreement filed in court, from at least April 1, 2012, through on or about March 12, 2013, a conspiracy involving the defendant existed to distribute heroin in Sheboygan and elsewhere. The conspirators obtained heroin and organized a standardized method of doing business, maintained continuing relationships, and relied upon repeated transactions. 

At sentencing Judge Adelman called this an “extensive heroin operation.”  Assistant United States Attorney Karine Moreno-Taxman described Reyes as a substantial heroin distributor in the Sheboygan area. 

This investigation was successful because of a cooperative effort by the Sheboygan County Metro Drug Enforcement Group, the Manitowoc County Metro Drug Enforcement Group and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Karine Moreno-Taxman.
