Dustin Swimmer of Wakpala was sentenced for possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance on May 13, by U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann.
Swimmer, 27, was sentenced to 37 months in prison, three years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
The sentence is one of many connected to an incident that began at a trailer in Mobridge in December that escalated into theft, drugs and kidnapping charges for people in Mobridge and on Standing Rock Reservation. Swimmer earlier pleaded guilty in federal to other charges related to the distribution of controlled substances in the area.
Swimmer was indicted by a federal grand jury for intent to distribute methamphetamine on Feb. 14, 2012 and pleaded guilty to the charges on Jan. 3.
The charge stems from an incident in 2011 in which Swimmer knowingly and intentionally possessed methamphetamine and distributed and other controlled substances in the area.
The Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force conducted the investigation.
Swimmer was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal’s Service.
