Madison Man Sentenced for Distributing Heroin

October 25, 2011

Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Tracy Williams, 42, Madison, Wis., was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to four years in prison for distributing heroin. Williams pleaded guilty to this charge on August 11, 2011.

Between September 2010 and May 2011, Williams and his brother, Sedrick Williams, conspired to distribute heroin. On September 16, 2010, police used an undercover police officer to buy heroin from Tracy Williams.

On May 19, 2011, law enforcement officers stopped Sedrick Williams while he was driving a car on the Interstate in Dane County and recovered over 30 grams of heroin that was hidden in the engine compartment. Sedrick Williams was taken into custody and the police arrested Tracy Williams at his apartment shortly thereafter.

Sedrick Williams has pleaded guilty for his role in the case and is scheduled to be sentenced on November 10, 2011.

The charges against Tracy Williams were the result of an investigation conducted by the Dane County Narcotics and Gang Task Force; Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation; and Drug Enforcement Administration. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul W. Connell.
