Woman Pleads Guilty in Drug Trafficking Case
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho (AP) — Federal prosecutors have their first guilty plea in a multistate drug trafficking case involving at least 20 people, including a Coeur d'Alene gastroenterologist and his family.
The Spokesman-Review reports that Geena Milho pleaded guilty this week to conspiracy to distribute heroin, oxycodone and methamphetamine.
Milho and 10 others were indicted by a federal grand jury in Coeur d'Alene on April 19.
In a plea agreement, Milho admitted she was part of the group that prosecutors say was headed by Loren Toelle, the wife of Stanley Toelle. He's a gastroenterologist who worked at Kootenai Health. He's charged with conspiracy to launder money.
Prosecutors say the group transported drugs from Nevada and California to Idaho, Washington, Montana and North Dakota from 2009 until early this year.
