Wausau Man Sentenced for Distributing Crack Cocaine

September 30, 2011

Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Lawrence Lavergne, 29, Wausau, Wis., was sentenced today by Chief U.S. District Judge William Conley to 90 months in prison for distributing crack cocaine. Lavergne pleaded guilty to this charge on July 15, 2011.

Between November 2010 and January 2011, Lavergne sold crack cocaine to a police informant on five occasions. At sentencing, Judge Conley determined that Lavergne deserved a lengthy prison term because he injured a police officer when he was arrested and because he repeatedly failed to comply with the terms of probation in other cases.

The charges against Lavergne were the result of an investigation conducted by the Marathon County Sheriff's Department and the Wausau Police Department. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul W. Connell.
