Madison Heroin Dealer Sentenced to 4 Years

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 Sedale Lacey-Robinson, 27, Madison, Wisconsin, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to four years in federal prison for distributing heroin laced with fentanyl. Lacey-Robinson pleaded guilty to this charge on July 15, 2019. His sentence will be followed by a three-year term of supervised release.

On five separate occasions in March and April 2019, Lacey-Robinson distributed heroin laced with fentanyl or cocaine to an undercover officer, for a total of 6.7 grams.  A search warrant was executed at Lacey-Robinson’s Madison home in April 2019, and officers recovered an additional 1.7 grams of heroin, and a handgun in the garage. 

During these drug transactions, Lacey-Robinson was on state probation because he was convicted of distributing heroin in 2014.  Lacey-Robinson’s term of state probation was revoked in June 2019, and he was sentenced to 18 months in prison.  Judge Peterson rejected his request for a concurrent sentence, and ordered the federal sentence to run consecutively to the state revocation sentence. 

The charge against Lacey-Robinson was the result of an investigation conducted by the Madison Police Department.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Rita M. Rumbelow.
