Jean Sonnenberg, 52, received more than nineteen years in prison, 49 year-old Bruce Sonnenberg received twenty four years in prison, and 24 year-old Amanda Sonnenberg received four years in prison. None of them will be eligible for parole.
The Sonnenberg's son, 19 year-old Christopher, was previously sentenced to five and a half years in prison, also without parole. Five additional defendants have pled guilty and await sentencing.
The Wisconsin Department of Justice says the members of the drug ring worked together to obtain and distribute crack cocaine on St. Croix Tribal lands between January 2001 and September 2008.
