Sioux Falls Man Sentenced In Methamphetamine Conspiracy
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota man was sentenced on April 8, 2013 by U.S. District Court Judge Karen E. Schreier.
Casey Dean Hoefert, age 33, was sentenced to 120 months in prison, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release, for conspiracy to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture containing methamphetamine. Hoefert was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 6, 2012, and pled guilty to the offense on January 15, 2013.
Hoefert acted as a middle man between two co-conspirators, accepting delivery of methamphetamine from one and delivering it to another, who gave Hoefert payment for the drugs. Hoefert then gave the money to his supplier.
This case was investigated by the SD Division of Criminal Investigation, the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Assistant U.S. Attorney John E. Haak prosecuted the case.
Hoefert was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
