Neenah Woman Indicted on Heroin Charges
James L. Santelle, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on June 2, 2015, a federal grand jury returned a single-count indictment against Brandi Kniebes-Larsen (age: 37) of Neenah, Wisconsin, charging her with one count of conspiracy to distribute 100 grams or more of heroin in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Section 846. If convicted of this offense, and based upon her previous felony drug conviction, Ms. Kniebes-Larsen faces a mandatory minimum ten years of imprisonment and up to a life sentence, from eight years to a lifetime of supervised release, and a maximum $8 million fine.
According to the indictment, the defendant conspired with others to sell over 100 grams of heroin in the Fox Valley region.
The case was investigated by the Lake Winnebago Area Metropolitan Enforcement Group and the Winnebago County Sheriff’s Department. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble.
An indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendants are presumed innocent and are entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
