FDL Drug Dealer Receives 15 Year Sentence

Fond du Lac County District Attorney Eric J. Toney announced Tuesday(July 18, 2022), that Adrian M. Irby has been sentenced to a 15 year bifurcated prison term of 8 years of initial confinement and 7 years of extended supervision.

Irby was convicted on multiple charges including one count of Manufacture/Delivery of Methamphetamine (>3-10g), Possession with Intent to Deliver Methamphetamine (>50g), and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. The remaining counts were dismissed and read-in for the court to consider at sentencing.

Court documents show Irby was found in possession of a firearm back in February 2020, as well as a reportedly 3.5 pounds of methamphetamine, which did not test positive for methamphetamine by the Wisconsin Crime Lab.

Irby also had previous charges involving the delivery of meth totaling nearly 2 pounds.

District Attorney Toney stated “Methamphetamine destroys lives and this defendant was a significant methamphetamine dealer in our community with a prior history of dealing drugs going back nearly 10 years. We will continue to aggressively investigate and prosecute dangerous drug dealers to keep our communities safe and end the historic drug epidemic in our state.”

Irby could have faced over 40 years of prison confinement. The state had recommended a 25 year sentence that would have included 10 years of initial confinement and 15 years of extended supervision.

The case was investigated by the City of Fond du Lac Police Department with assistance from the Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Office and Lake Winnebago Area Drug Unit and prosecuted by District Attorney Eric Toney.
