Wednesday, February 21, 2018 | by Ben Dryden |


Janelle Quaderer and Dustin Farley, both of Hayward, WI, have been charged with Felony Delivery of Methamphetamine in Sawyer County Circuit Court following a controlled buy investigation.

According to a criminal complaint filed in Sawyer County Circuit Court against Quaderer, Sawyer County law enforcement worked with confidential informants to coordinate the purchase of methamphetamine from Quaderer on multiple occasions.

In November and December 2017, at least 3 controlled buys were coordinated in which confidential informants purchased methamphetamine from Quaderer at various locations in Sawyer County. In at least 1 of these, Farley was involved in completing the transaction, states the criminal complaint.

After each controlled buy, law enforcement tested the substances which were allegedly sold by Quaderer and Farley, and those test results were positive for methamphetamine. A total of nearly 7 grams of methamphetamine was seized as a result of these controlled buys.

Quaderer is charged with 1 count of Class E Felony Delivery of Methamphetamine (more than 3 grams but not more than 10 grams); 1 count of Class F Felony Delivery of Methamphetamine (3 grams or less); and another count of Class F Felony Delivery of Methamphetamine (3 grams or less), with the penalty enhancer for Party to a Crime.

A criminal complaint was also filed against Farley charging him with 1 count of Class F Felony Delivery of Methamphetamine (3 grams or less), Party to a Crime.

If convicted of all charges as filed against her, Quaderer could face a maximum of 40 years imprisonment, $100,000 maximum fine, or both. A conviction for Farley on his charge could result in a maximum prison term of 12.5 years, a maximum fine of $25,000, or both.

Online circuit court records show that Quaderer made an Initial Appearance on February 20, 2018, regarding her charges in Sawyer County Circuit Court. The Court placed Quaderer on a $20,000 signature bond which requires her to register with the Sawyer County STOP program and comply with all requirements to include Absolute Sobriety and Random Testing of breath/blood urine.

Farley was scheduled to appear on February 20, 2018, on his charge, but online circuit court records indicate that his court appearance was rescheduled to March 2018 at the request of his defense attorney.

Pursuant to the direction of the Wisconsin Supreme Court, as found in Supreme Court Rule 20:3.6, Trial Publicly, you are advised that a charge is merely an accusation and that a defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
