Minnesota Man Sentenced for Distributing Methamphetamine in Wisconsin
Madison, Wis. – Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Bradley Kraemer, 34, White Bear Lake, Minnesota, pleaded guilty and was sentenced on March 14, 2019, by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 78 months in prison for distributing methamphetamine.
Kraemer transported more than 100 grams of high quality methamphetamine from Minnesota to Monona, Wisconsin, on February 20, 2018. Judge Conley noted that this is Kraemer’s first federal conviction, though he has a lengthy criminal history, “dotted with numerous periods of incarceration, all having been brief in duration.”
The charge against Kraemer was the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration in Wisconsin and Minnesota, and the Wisconsin Department of Justice Division of Criminal Investigation. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Diane Schlipper.
