Hulett woman sentenced for fentanyl shipping in US District Court


GILLETTE, Wyo. —  A Hulett woman will spend the next two years in prison after she was sentenced in federal court for her involvement in a large-scale drug shipping operation, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. 

Donna Singleton, a 59-year-old resident of Hulett, was sentenced to 48 months in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Scott W. Skavdahl on Feb. 1 relating to a joint investigation conducted by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration in 2023, per the U.S. Attorney’s Office. 

The investigation was regarding a large drug operation that involved shipping narcotics through the U.S. Postal Service, during which agents were alerted to a package addressed to Singleton that contained 8,000 fentanyl pills, the U.S. Attorney’s Office says. 

Following a controlled delivery, Singleton was taken into custody. She ultimately pleaded guilty to using the postal service to receive narcotics, per the U.S. Attorney’s Office.
