The United States Attorney’s Office in Sioux City reports that 52-year-old Todd Daugherty of Spencer received the prison term recently, following a February guilty plea.

Daugherty admitted his involvement in a conspiracy from about 2013 and continuing through May 2014 that distributed more than 50 grams of actual (pure) methamphetamine in Spencer and the surrounding area. Daugherty says he would obtain the methamphetamine from Minnesota and later distribute the methamphetamine to multiple customers in Iowa. A traffic stop was conducted of Daugherty in Minnesota in which four ounces of methamphetamine was seized.

Daugherty was sentenced to 132 months in prison, in addition to other fines, penalties, and assessments. He must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
