For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Western District of Wisconsin

MADISON, WIS. – Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Fred McGee, 46, Chicago, Illinois, was sentenced on November 8, 2019 by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 84 months in federal prison for possessing 100 grams or more of heroin with intent to distribute.   McGee pleaded guilty to this charge on August 19, 2019.

On January 31, 2018, law enforcement officers recovered approximately 104 grams of fentanyl-laced heroin during a traffic stop of a vehicle in Dunn County, Wisconsin.  The vehicle was occupied by McGee, Terry Glaspie, and another individual.  During the course of their investigation, law enforcement determined that McGee transported the heroin from Chicago so he could sell it in Minneapolis, Minnesota. 

Judge Conley previously sentenced Glaspie to 66 months in prison for his role in this offense.

The charge against McGee was the result of an investigation conducted by the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, Menomonie Police Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, Dunn County District Attorney’s Office, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Chadwick M. Elgersma.
