Wausau Woman Sentenced For Mailing Suboxone To Jail Inmate

MADISON, WIS. -- John W. Vaudreuil, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Jennifer Schoenfeldt, 32, Wausau, Wis., was sentenced today by U.S. District Judge Lynn Adelman to two years of probation for mailing suboxone into the Dane County Jail.  Schoenfeldt pleaded guilty to this offense on May 20, 2014. 

On February 10, 2014, deputies at the Dane County Jail were sorting mail when they discovered suboxone strips behind the postage stamp on an incoming letter from Schoenfeldt, addressed to her boyfriend, Eric Zastrow.  Zastrow’s cell was later searched and three additional envelopes that appeared to be from Schoenfeldt were found, each with suboxone strips under the stamp. 

The charges against Schoenfeldt were the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration; Wisconsin Department of Justice, Division of Criminal Investigation; Marathon County Sheriff’s Department Special Investigations Unit; and Dane County Sheriff’s Department.  The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Altman.
