Crime - Sacto 911

Alaska man who shipped drugs from Sacramento headed to prison

A man from Kodiak, Alaska, who enlisted a Sacramento resident to ship drugs, has been sentenced to seven years in prison.

U.S District Judge Troy L. Nunley on Thursday sentenced DuWayne LeDoux, 55, for possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to structure cash payments, according to a U.S. Attorney’s Office news release.

Court documents indicate that LeDoux enlisted Sacramento resident Jennifer MacDougal, 45, to obtain and ship methamphetamine and crack cocaine to 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.

MacDougal pleaded guilty in November 2012 and was sentenced to five years in prison.

The case resulted from an investigation by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Internal Revenue Service’s Financial Crimes Task Force.
