A husband, wife and their two adult children are accused of selling prescription medication in Lake Geneva and in Williams Bay.

Four members of the Fibish family face felony charges after the Walworth County Drug Unit used confidential informants to allegedly purchase drugs. Police report that the first controlled buy of a prescription drug occurred more than a year ago.

Richard K. Fibish Sr., 43, and his wife, Justina L. Fibish, 44, both of Lake Geneva, each face four felony charges of delivering a schedule I or II narcotic. If convicted of all counts, they each face up to 60 years imprisonment and $200,000 in fines.

Zakary R. Fibish, 21, Lake Geneva, faces three felony counts of delivering a schedule I or II narcotic. If convicted, he faces up to 45 years imprisonment and $150,000 in fines.

Richard K. Fibish Jr., 25, Williams Bay, faces one count of delivering a schedule I or II narcotic and two counts of delivering a schedule I, II or III non-narcotic. If convicted, he faces up to 27 years imprisonment and $70,000.

According to online jail records, Richard Sr., Richard Jr. and Zakary are in custody at the Walworth County jail. Each are being held on a $1,500 cash bond.

Jail records indicate that Justina posted a $1,500 cash bond and was released from custody.

According to the criminal complaints:

In 2013, on June 4, July 31 and Aug. 30 a confidential informant purchased morphine from Justina for between $100 and $120.

On Nov. 14, 2013, the confidential informant had set up a purchase of 10 tablets of Oxycontin from Justina for $150.

However, the informant received a call from Justina stating that the informant should go to the home of Richard Jr. to purchase the pills. The informant purchased the pills from Richard Jr.

On Jan. 22, 2014, the informant made an arrangement with Richard Jr. to purchase 15 tablets of Vicodin for $40 in Lake Geneva.
