A man who conspired to distribute methamphetamine was sentenced June 10, 2019, to more than eleven years in federal prison.

Ty Wildt, 30, from Webster City, Iowa, received the prison term after a January 8, 2019, guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.  In 2016, Wildt was previously convicted of two felony drug offenses in Iowa.

Evidence at the plea hearing and sentencing showed Wildt was involved in a conspiracy from April 2018 through September 2018 that distributed more than 150 grams of pure methamphetamine.  On three occasions in August 2018, Wildt distributed more than 24 grams of pure methamphetamine to individuals cooperating with law enforcement.

Wildt was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams.  Wildt was sentenced to 141 months’ imprisonment.  He must also serve a 5-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Wildt is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Wright County Sheriff’s Office, Webster City Police Department, and Iowa Division of Criminalistics Investigation.
