Lincoln Man Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute and Distribution of Cocaine Base
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on March 21, 2013, Timothy M. Felton, age 37 of Lincoln, was sentenced to 12 ½ years, (150 months), in prison for conspiracy to distribute cocaine base, also known as crack cocaine, and two counts of distribution of cocaine base between February of 2007 and April of 2010. Following the prison term, Felton will serve five years on supervised release.
Felton was held responsible for the distribution of approximately 5 ⅔ ounces of cocaine base. In March of 2010, a confidential informant working with the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force made two purchases of small amounts of cocaine base from Felton.
The matter was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force, which includes officers of the Lincoln Police Department, the Lancaster County Sheriffs Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, (FBI), and the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department.
