United States Attorney Matthew D. Krueger of the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on April 13, 2018, Ryan L. Pieper (age: 33) of Green Bay, Wisconsin, appeared in federal court in Green Bay and was sentenced to 240 months in federal prison for his role in a methamphetamine distribution ring in Northeast Wisconsin.
In the spring of 2017, Pieper was involved in a conspiracy that resulted in pounds of methamphetamine, acquired from a source in Phoenix, Arizona, being distributed in Brown County and elsewhere in Northeast Wisconsin.
In pronouncing sentence, Chief United States District Court Judge William C. Griesbach noted the serious nature of Pieper’s crime and the negative effect that methamphetamine has had on the community. The judge told Pieper that his crime called for a strong sentence, especially in light of his extensive prior record of criminal convictions. Following his release from prison, Pieper will serve 10 years on federal supervised release.
The United States Drug Enforcement Administration and the Brown County Drug Task Force investigated the case. Assistant United States Attorney Daniel R. Humble prosecuted the case.
