Enger sentenced on Lake County drug charges

A Madison woman has been sentenced on a couple of drug-related charges.  38-year-old Karen Enger of Madison was sentenced in Lake County Circuit Court this week on a felony count of Keeping a Place for the Use or Sale of Controlled Substances, and a felony count of Distribution of an ounce or less of marijuana to a minor.  Enger had been indicted on these and other charges in August of 2020, pleading guilty to the two charges in August of this year as part of a plea agreement.  

Circuit Judge Pat Pardy this week sentenced Enger to serve three years in the state penitentiary on the marijuana distribution charge.  The judge also ordered Enger to pay fines and costs totaling close to nine-hundred dollars, and to reimburse the county for her court-appointed attorney’s fees.  

On the charge of Keeping a Place for the Use or Sale of Controlled Substances, Judge Pardy sentenced Enger to serve two years in the state penitentiary.  The judge suspended the penitentiary time based on several conditions, including that Enger pay a five-hundred dollar fine, court costs, and reimburse Lake County for her court-appointed attorney’s fees.  

Enger will serve her sentences consecutively.
