The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration also assisted with this investigation.  Questions concerning this case should be directed to the Waushara County District Attorney's Office.  A defendant enjoys the presumption of innocence.  The prosecution must prove its allegations at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.
