Hawarden Man Sentenced For Delivery Of Crystal Meth
Date posted - February 28, 2012
A Hawarden man has been sentenced to ten years in prison after he pled guilty to a drug offense.
Sioux County Attorney Coleman McAllister says that 42-year-old Samuel Scott Skogman of Hawarden was sentenced for the crime of Delivery of Methamphetamine, a Class C Felony.
On May 7, 2011, McAllister says Skogman delivered crystal methamphetamine to an undercover informant being utilized by the Hawarden Police Department and the Sioux County Sheriffs Department. Crystal methamphetamine, or ice as it is more commonly known, is a crystalline form of methamphetamine which is purer and more highly potent than powdered methamphetamine. Working together, law enforcement agents from both departments monitored the drug transaction and conducted an investigation. As a result of the investigation, charges were ultimately filed and an arrest warrant was issued for Skogmans arrest. Skogman was arrested on the outstanding arrest warrant on January 9, 2012. Skogman pled guilty to Delivery of Methamphetamine in District Court on February 27, 2012.
Skogman was sentenced to ten years in prison. He must serve a mandatory minimum sentence of one-third (3-1/3 years) before he is eligible for parole. Skogmans privileges to operate a motor vehicle will be revoked for 180 days and he must undergo a substance abuse evaluation and follow any recommended treatment while in prison.
