Federal court files indictmentState charges may be dropped for federal charges
While a trial for Kyle Boileau, 26, was scheduled for Aug. 20, the case was put on hold after a federal indictment was filed stemming from a Dec. 5, 2012 incident in which Boileau was allegedly found driving with an active meth lab on his lap.
“We found out on either Aug. 20 or Aug. 21,” Washington County Attorney Larry Brock said. “The U.S. District Attorney’s office will be handling his case.”
Before Boileau was federally indicted, a plea deal was being worked out for the charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, Brock said. The details of the deal were not disclosed. Brock hasn’t seen the federal indictment papers yet but said they are related to the Dec. 5, 2012 incident.
If the federal indictment is pursued, the charges of conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine, (which is a class C felony punishable up to 10 years in prison), the state has filed against Boileau could be dropped, Brock said. He said his office will be working with the drug task force throughout the federal indictment process.
On Dec. 5, 2012 Boileau was pulled over in the 100 block of West Washington Street in Washington. As law enforcement approached the vehicle they found Boileau had an active meth lab using the one-pot method sitting on his lap. Brianna Hole, 23, was also in the vehicle when it was stopped. She pleaded guilty May 29 to conspiracy to manufacture, deliver and/or possess with intent to deliver methamphetamine in an amount less than five grams and was placed on five years probation.
The Washington Fire Department set up an area for decontamination on the south side of the square. Boileau and Hole both had to be decontaminated before being taken into custody.
After these arrests, Ron Boileau, 50, was also taken into custody. He was later found dead in the Washington County Jail. According to court records, Kyle Boileau was allowed to attend Ron Boileau’s funeral and was escorted by a jailer.
Ron Boileau was watching a room in the Goncho Apartments for a relative prior to the arrests in December. On Jan. 17 the city declared Goncho Apartments unlivable due to the high residue from methamphetamine. There were also several city, state, and fire code violations. The building was declared a dangerous building and tenants were ordered to leave. It had 16 apartments and 30 people lived in it. It remains uninhabitable.
