Milwaukee Man Sentenced to 33 Months for Possessing Crack Cocaine for Distribution | USAO-WDWI

MADISON, WIS. – Scott C. Blader, United States Attorney for the Western District of Wisconsin, announced that Derek Evans, 32, Milwaukee, Wisconsin was sentenced today by Chief U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson to 33 months in federal prison for possessing 28 grams or more of crack cocaine with the intent to distribute. This prison term will be followed by 3 years of supervised release.

On February 7, 2020, officers with the Dane County Narcotics Task Force arrested Evans after he sold crack cocaine to an undercover agent and a confidential informant. At the time of his arrest, the defendant had approximately 60 grams of crack cocaine in his pants.

In sentencing Evans, Chief Judge Peterson noted that the amount of crack cocaine found in the defendant’s possession was not consistent with one-time distribution, and instead reflected that he was exploiting the addiction of others.

The charge against Evans was the result of an investigation conducted by the Dane County Narcotics Task Force and Madison Police Department. The prosecution of the case has been handled by Assistant U.S. Attorney Taylor L. Kraus.
