Waupun Man To Serve 110 Months In Prison

A Waupun man has been found guilty of distributing methamphetamine. 29-year old Timothy Savannah had plead guilty to the charges back on February 2, and will now serve 110 months in federal prison. Chief U.S. District Judge James D. Peterson handed down the sentence during proceedings in the Western District of Wisconsin.

Judge Peterson said Savannah has an “unrelenting pattern of criminal offenses,” which include more than one violent felony conviction.

Peterson also said the sentence needed to be “substantial” because of “Savannah’s deep involvement in drug trafficking” and that he had a loaded firearm.

Savannah was initially charged in Sauk County Circuit Court after a drug raid on a Lake Delton resident in September.

An undercover police officer bought meth from Savannah two separate times in Lake Delton back in September of 2020, totaling 76 grams after finding that he had a felony warrant for his arrest through the Wisconsin Department of Corrections.

During a raid on an apartment where Savannah was staying, law enforcement found more than $7,000 in cash, tools used for processing drugs, a handgun and bags of cocaine, ecstasy and heroin.
