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 Corey Scheerenberger, 36, Plover, Wisconsin, was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to seven years in federal prison for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute.  He pleaded guilty to this offense on August 15, 2019.

On September 27, 2018, law enforcement agents executed a search warrant at Scheerenberger’s residence.  Throughout the property, agents found approximately 240 grams of methamphetamine, five firearms, a large quantity of cash, drug packaging materials and paraphernalia, and other illegal drugs.  Further investigation revealed that Scheerenberger’s methamphetamine distribution involved at least 680 grams of methamphetamine.  Scheerenberger admitted to selling methamphetamine in the Plover community for the past few years. 

At the time of his arrest, Scheerenberger was on probation out of California for possessing a controlled substance and also in Wisconsin for disorderly conduct. His criminal history dates back to 2001 with several drug-related convictions.

During sentencing, Judge Peterson noted that Scheerenberger was dealing methamphetamine in quantities indicative of a “drug lifestyle” while serving a probationary sentence. 

 The charge against Scheerenberger was the result of an investigation conducted by the Central Wisconsin Drug Task Force, the Portage County Sheriff’s Office, and the Plover and Stevens Point Police Departments.  The prosecution of the case was handled by United States Attorney Scott C. Blader and Assistant U.S. Attorney Diane Schlipper.
