Stevens Point Man Sentenced to 10 Years for Cocaine Distribution

October 10, 2012

Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Adrian Haynes, 24, Stevens Point, Wis.,was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb to 10 years for conspiracy to possess cocaine with the intent to distribute. Haynes pleaded guilty to this charge or these charges on August 10, 2012.

Haynes was indicted on March 29, 2012, following his arrest in Stevens Point. At the time of his arrest, he was in possession of approximately 30 grams of cocaine and there was other evidence indicating that he was distributing narcotics. Prior to his arrest, Haynes resided in Wausau where he was involved in cocaine trafficking with Deward Johnson, Romaill Cox, Anthony Dawson, Eric Maholmes and Mike Lumbert, all of whom have been sentenced to between 66 months and 20 years in prison for their respective roles in the case.

Prior to Haynes's guilty plea, the United States filed a notice of enhanced penalties with the Court, which triggered a mandatory prison term of at least 10 years in the case to reflect the fact that Haynes had two prior drug felony convictions.

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