Fri 3-8-2019

(Sioux City)-- A Sanborn woman has been sentenced in federal court after pleading guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine within a thousand feet of the Hartley-Melvin-Sanborn Middle School.

33-year-old Jamie Williams was sentenced today (Fri.) to eight years in federal prison.

Evidence presented at a plea hearing revealed that from 2015 through January 2018 Williams distributed more than six pounds of methamphetamine from her residence near the school. A search warrant that was executed in January, 2018 on Williams' residence resulted in authorities seizing more than 120 grams of pure meth from her purse. 

In addition to the prison time, Williams must also serve an eight-year term of supervised release.

The case was investigated by the Clay, Dickinson and O'Brien County Sheriff's Offices and the Iowa DCI.
