Description: Green Bay, WI - Green Bay Man Receives 20 Year Sentence for Methamphetamine Distribution
On April 13, 2018, Ryan L. Pieper (age: 33) of Green Bay, Wisconsin, appeared in federal court in Green Bay and was sentenced to 240 months in federal prison for his role in a methamphetamine distribution ring in Northeast Wisconsin.
In the spring of 2017, Pieper was involved in a conspiracy that resulted in pounds of methamphetamine, acquired from a source in Phoenix, Arizona, being distributed in Brown County and elsewhere in Northeast Wisconsin.
In pronouncing sentence, Chief United States District Court Judge William C.

The judge told Pieper that his crime called for a strong sentence, especially in light of his extensive prior record of criminal convictions. Following his release from prison, Pieper will serve 10 years on federal supervised release.
The United States Drug Enforcement Administration and the Brown County Drug Task Force investigated the case.
Outcome: Defendant was sentenced to 240 month's in prison.
