Haanstad, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on January 4, 2016, Kou Lee (age: 26) of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was sentenced by Chief United States District Judge William C. Griesbach, to 60 months in federal prison followed by 60 months of supervised release.

Lee had previously entered a guilty plea to a charge of knowingly possessing with the intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 841(a)(1).
