Three Oshkosh Men Charged with conspiracy to Distribute Heroin

United States Attorney James L. Santelle of the Eastern District of Wisconsin announced an indictment against Sherman M. Threets (age: 29), Lamarcus J. Cargill (age: 26), and Dustin J. Burdick (age: 23) all of Oshkosh, Wisconsin, for conspiracy to distribute over 100 grams of heroin in violation Title 21 United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1), (b)(1)(B), and Title 18 United States Code, Section 2.  

The indictment alleges that this occurred in the Lake Winnebago area. If convicted the defendants face a sentence of between 5 and 40 years imprisonment, a maximum fine of $5,000,000, a $100 special assessment, and a 4 year to life term of supervised release. 

This case was investigated by the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group. It will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt.  The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove them guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
