Alaska Resident Sentenced To 7 Years For Drug Dealing And Money Laundering

Money shipped to Sacramento; methamphetamine and crack cocaine shipped to Alaska

SACRAMENTO, Calif. - -Today, United States District Judge Troy L. Nunley sentenced DuWayne LeDoux, 55, of Kodiak, Alaska, to seven years in prison for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to structure cash deposits, United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner and Drug Enforcement Administration Special Agent in Charge John J. Martin announced.

According to court documents, LeDoux enlisted Sacramento resident Jennifer MacDougal, 45, to obtain and ship methamphetamine and crack cocaine to LeDoux at various addresses in Kodiak and under various names, so that LeDoux could sell the drugs. LeDoux paid for the drugs by depositing cash into a Wells Fargo account held by MacDougal in amounts designed to avoid bank reporting requirements.

Kodiak, Alaska is on Kodiak Island off the southern coast of Alaska. The island has a total of approximately 14,000 residents, with approximately 6,000 of them in Kodiak.

Co-defendant MacDougal pleaded guilty in November 2012, and was sentenced to five years in prison.
