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 Daniel Norris, 32, Madison, Wisconsin, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to 67 months in federal prison for possessing crack cocaine with the intent to distribute. Norris pleaded guilty to this charge on September 4, 2019.
On January 7, 2019, law enforcement officers executed a search warrant at Norris’ residence in Madison. During the search, officers recovered 54 grams of crack cocaine, 82 grams of powder cocaine, a stolen Glock pistol, and $6,906 in cash. Norris was on supervision at the time of the search for a felony conviction for 3rd degree sexual assault in Dane County.
At the sentencing hearing, Judge Peterson was troubled by Norris’ lengthy criminal history and the fact that he was involved with dealing drugs while on supervision. Judge Peterson also noted that Norris’ possession of a stolen firearm was particularly alarming.
The charge against Norris was a result of an investigation conducted by the Dane County Narcotics Task Force, Madison Police Department, Grant County Sheriff’s Office, and Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Wegner.
