Comments Off on Eldorado, Ill., woman draws ten years in meth case

ELDORADO, Ill. — An Eldorado, Ill., woman has been sentenced to ten years in federal prison for her role in a lengthy methamphetamine manufacturing scheme.

Brandie Wenzel, 39, drew a 121 month prison sentence in U.S. District Court at Benton, Ill., last week after entering a guilty plea to a single count of being in possession of the drug pseudoephedrine, knowing it would be used to manufacture methamphetamine.

In charging Wenzel, federal prosecutors stated that between June of 2008 and May of 2010, she would buy or obtain from others cold pills that contained pseudoephedrine for use in the manufacture of meth. In return, Wenzel would be paid in cash or with a portion of the finished product for her work.

The case against Wenzel was developed by agents of the Carmi-based Southern Illinois Drug Task Force.
