Attorney General Scott Pruitt announced this week that his office secured a 10 year prison sentence in the case of Skye Dawn Brauderick.
Brauderick, who along with a co-conspirator, was charged with running a heroin distribution ring and money laundering operation in the Bethany area. The prosecution of Brauderick was the product of a joint investigation between the Oklahoma Attorney General’s Anti-Money Laundering Division and U.S. Homeland Security Investigations.
“This prosecution demonstrates my office’s continuing commitment to keep criminals from selling poison for profit on our streets,” Attorney General Pruitt stated. “Of all the narcotics available on Oklahoma streets, heroin is one of the most addictive and dangerous. We should not tolerate its distribution and the profit that criminals derive from it.”
The Anti-Money Laundering Division is part of the Attorney General’s Multicounty Grand Jury Unit. The newly formed division focuses on combating criminal money laundering activities.
