Madison Man sentenced for distributing heroin

October 18, 2012

Madison, Wis. - John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Kevin Moore, 30, Madison, Wis., was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb to 37 months in prison, followed by a three-year term of supervised release, for distribution of heroin. Moore pleaded guilty to this charge on July 25, 2012.

Moore was distributing heroin in Madison in April and May 2012 while he was on federal supervised release. Consequently, Moore also received a consecutive 24-month sentence for violating a mandatory condition of release that he not commit other crimes, for a total sentence of 61 months.

On May 2, 2006, Judge Crabb sentenced Moore to 54 months in prison for possessing a firearm as a convicted felon, followed by three years of supervised release. When Moore was released from federal prison in that case, he was released to a residential reentry center. Moore escaped from that center and on June 15, 2010, Judge Crabb sentenced him to 18 months in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. He began his terms of supervised release on January 20, 2012.

The charges against Moore are the result of an investigation by the Madison Police Department and Dane County Narcotics and Gang Task Force. The prosecution of this case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rita M. Rumbelow.
