Husband & Wife Plead Guilty To Conspiring To Distribute Oxycodone

MADISON, WIS. -- John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Charlie Sunn Meshigaud, 25, and Andrew Meshigaud, 27, Lac du Flambeau, Wis., pleaded guilty today in U.S. District Court in Madison to conspiring to possess Oxycodone with intent to distribute. 

From January to June 2013, the Meshigauds made numerous trips to Milwaukee to purchase 30 mg pills of Oxycodone.  During that time period, they, and others at their request, wired over $50,000 to their source in Milwaukee.  The Meshigauds and others then transported the Oxycodone back to Lac du Flambeau where it was distributed for profit.

U.S. District Judge Barbara B. Crabb scheduled sentencing for the Meshigauds on August 22, 2014. They both face a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison.

The charges against the Meshigauds are the result of an investigation conducted by the Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation; Lac du Flambeau Police Department; and the Vilas and Oneida County Sheriffs’ Departments.  The prosecution of this case has been assigned to Assistant U.S. Attorney Rita M. Rumbelow.
