Milford Man To Serve Nine Years In Federal Prison On Meth Charge

Sioux City, Iowa — A Milford man has been sentenced to nine years in prison on a drug distribution charge.

According to the U.S. Attorney’s office in Sioux City, 46-year-old Justin Haubrich of Milford was sentenced to 108 months in federal prison after a June guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

The U.S. Attorney’s office says the evidence at the plea and sentencing hearings showed that from May 2018 through January 2019, Haubrich was involved in a conspiracy that distributed at least 2500 grams of methamphetamine, which is thousands of doses. Haubrich was supplied methamphetamine from sources in Denison and Council Bluffs for further distribution in Northwest Iowa. During a traffic stop in January 2019, Haubrich was found in possession of a .45 caliber handgun and was known to keep and store firearms during his drug trafficking activities.

Sentencing was held before United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Haubrich was sentenced to 108 months in federal prison and must serve a term of three years supervised release following imprisonment. There is no parole in the federal system.
