Minnesota man sentenced to five years on methamphetamine charge
MADISON, Wis. - DEA Special Agent in Charge Robert J. Bell and United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin Scott C. Blader announced that William Huff, 54, of St. Paul, Minnesota, was sentenced today by Chief U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to five years in federal prison for possessing methamphetamine with intent to distribute. Huff pleaded guilty to this charge on Sept. 25, 2019.
On April 20, 2019, Wisconsin State Patrol troopers stopped Huff for speeding in Dunn County and determined that his driver’s license had been revoked. Due to the suspicious behavior of Huff and his passenger, troopers searched his vehicle. During the search, troopers found two bags containing a total of 131 grams of methamphetamine. During a post-arrest interview, Huff admitted that he had purchased the methamphetamine in Minnesota and planned to sell it in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
The charge against Huff was a result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Wisconsin State Patrol, and the Dunn County Sheriff’s Office. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Aaron Wegner.
