A 55-year-old Kodiak resident faces up to 40-years in prison and $5-million fine in connection to a drug dealing conspiracy and money laundering. According to U.S. Attorney Karen Loeffler, DuWayne LeDoux pleaded guilty on Thursday in U.S. District Court in Sacramento to posession with intent to distribute methamphetamine and conspiracy to structure cash deposits to avoid bank scrutiny.
His co-defendant, Jennifer MacDougal of Sacramento would send the meth and crack cocaine to LeDoux. She pleaded guilty in November 2012 and is currently serving a five-year sentence.
LeDoux is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Troy Nunley on January 7th. Though he faces decades in federal prison, Loeffler points out that the actual sentence LeDoux receives will be at the discretion of the court after taking other factors into account.
