Madison Man Sentenced for Distributing Crack Cocaine

February 17, 2012

Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Larry D. Sullivan, 32, Madison, Wis., was sentenced yesterday by U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb to 14 years in prison for distribution of crack cocaine. Sullivan pleaded guilty to this charge on November 28, 2011.

In March 2011, a confidential informant stated that Sullivan was a large crack dealer in Madison. Beginning on April 7, 2011, and ending on June 16, 2011, an undercover officer purchased crack cocaine from Sullivan on five separate occasions.

At the time of this offense, Sullivan was on probation for two Dane County felony drug convictions. Judge Crabb stated that the lengthy sentence was warranted due to Sullivan's long criminal history and noncompliance with multiple terms of probation.

The charges against Sullivan were the result of an investigation conducted by the Dane County Narcotics and Gang Task Force and Drug Enforcement Administration. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney David J. Reinhard.
