Roberta Draheim is scheduled to be sentenced early next year.

Federal charges were filed against Draheim in April for allegedly bringing meth from California to Wisconsin over a two-year period.

The drug was kept in local storage units.

Draheim’s adult daughter, Britney Masewicz, died in February, and Draheim believes her death resulted from a heroin overdose.

Back in March, Draheim pleaded not guilty to three drug charges.
