Jury Finds Lincoln Man Guilty of Conspiracy to Manufacture Methamphetamine
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on December 15, 2011, after a four day trial, a federal jury found Mark Skoda, 45, of Lincoln, Nebraska, guilty of conspiracy to manufacture 500 grams or more methamphetamine. During the trial before Senior United States District Judge Richard Kopf, four individuals who had conspired with Skoda testified. They explained how, over the course of about twenty months, about 375 boxes of pseudoephedrine cold medicine had been made by Skoda into about 630 grams of methamphetamine. This took place in and around an acreage located at 139th and O, just east of Lincoln. The defendant is facing 20 years to life in prison and is scheduled to be sentenced in early March.
This case was investigated by the Lancaster County Sheriff and the Lincoln Police Department.
