United States Attorney Gregory J. Haanstad of the Eastern District of Wisconsin announced that on December 13, 2022, a federal grand jury returned an indictment charging Peter D. Boyd (age 36), of Keshena, Wisconsin, with controlled substance and firearms offenses on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The indictment charged Boyd with the following counts:





Possession with Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine, 21 U.S.C. §§ 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(B)

Mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years, up to 40 years in prison.


Possession of a Firearm in Furtherance of Drug Trafficking, 18 U.S.C. § 924(c)

Mandatory minimum consecutive sentence of 5 years, up to life in prison.

Boyd also faces a period of supervised release, possible fines, and a special assessment for each count if convicted.

 According to filed court documents, on or about October 15, 2022, Boyd possessed 50 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine and possessed a firearm in furtherance of the intended distribution of the methamphetamine.

The Menominee Tribal Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case, which Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier will prosecute.

 An indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
