Green Bay Man Sentenced to 84 Months in Prison for Firearms Charge

Gregory J. Haanstad, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on February 13, 2017, Lucycan Ly (age: 36) of Green Bay, Wisconsin, was sentenced to 84 months in federal prison by Chief United States District Judge William C. Griesbach. Ly previously entered a guilty plea to a charge of possession a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking charge in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 924(c)(1)(A).

 

According to the plea agreement and other documents filed with the court, police searched Ly’s residence and found large amounts of methamphetamine and marijuana, along with 3 loaded firearms. As a felon, Ly was prohibited from possessing a firearm based on prior convictions in state court.

 

In pronouncing the sentence, Chief Judge Griesbach noted the debilitating effect that methamphetamine has on individuals and the great harm the drug causes in Northeast Wisconsin. He further noted that the quantity of methamphetamine and the presence of firearms made this a particularly dangerous crime.

 

The case was investigated by the Brown County Drug Task Force and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.
