Kodiak man, 55-year-old DuWayne LeDoux, was sentenced in the Eastern California District Court in Sacramento to seven years in prison for “possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to structure cash deposits,” United States Attorney Benjamin B. Wagner announced in a Department of Justice press release on Thursday.

In a plea agreement in October, LeDoux pled guilty to the charges.

In court documents, it was revealed that LeDoux partnered with 45-year-old Sacramento resident, Jennifer McDougal to supply crack cocaine and methamphetamine to Kodiak from 2009 until 2011. MacDougal, while in California, would ship the drugs to different addresses, and under different names, to Kodiak, and in return, LeDoux would deposit money into MacDougal’s Wells Fargo account. 

LeDoux would deposit money in amounts less than $10,000 in order to side-step federal transaction reports. Court records show that in 2010 alone, LeDoux deposited $274,000 into MacDougal’s Wells Fargo account.

In 2010, drug investigators learned from an anonymous tipster that MacDougal was sending a shipment to LeDoux. Investigators applied for, and were issued a warrant to check the parcel. Inside, investigators would find 110 grams of crack cocaine and 50 grams of Methamphetamine.

MacDougal pled guilty to her part in the drug operation in 2012 and was sentenced to five years in prison last year.

LeDoux faced a maximum sentence of 40 years in prison for his drug operation, but was sentenced to seven by United States District Judge Troy L. Nunley.
