United States Attorney Stephanie A. Finley announced that Timothy LeJeune, 34, of Mamou, was sentenced on December 18, 2012 to 10 years in federal prison and five years supervised release for his involvement in a conspiracy that distributed methamphetamine in the Acadiana area. The sentence was handed down by U. S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote as a result of LeJeune's guilty plea in October of 2011.
LeJeune was named in a six-count superseding indictment along with two codefendants, charging him with conspiracy to possess and distribute methamphetamine and related offenses. The case was the result of an investigation conducted by the Drug Enforcement Administration, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, Louisiana State Police, Lafayette Police Department and the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office. During his guilty plea, LeJeune admitted that since 2007, he had been obtaining methamphetamine from several sources, and distributing it to friends and acquaintances.
This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Brett Grayson.
