Chicago resident sentenced to 84 months for possessing heroin with intent to distribute
MADISON, Wis. – DEA Chicago Division Special Agent in Charge Robert J. Bell, and United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin Scott C. Blader announced that Fred McGee, 46, of Chicago, was sentenced on Nov. 8, 2019, by U.S. District Judge William M. Conley to 84 months in federal prison for possessing 100 grams or more of heroin with intent to distribute. McGee pleaded guilty to this charge on Aug. 19, 2019.
On Jan. 31, 2018, law enforcement officers recovered approximately 104 grams of fentanyl-laced heroin during a traffic stop of a vehicle in Dunn County, Wis. The vehicle was occupied by McGee, Terry Glaspie, and another individual. During the course of their investigation, law enforcement determined that McGee transported the heroin from Chicago so he could sell it in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Judge Conley previously sentenced Glaspie to 66 months in prison for his role in this offense.
The charge against McGee was the result of an investigation conducted by the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office, Menomonie Police Department, Wisconsin State Patrol, Dunn County District Attorney’s Office, and the Drug Enforcement Administration. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Chadwick M. Elgersma.
