Lincoln Woman Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine
United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on May 3, 2012, Jodi Ann Haynes, age 21 of Lincoln was sentenced to 10 years and one month (121 months) in prison for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and cocaine between January of 2009 and December of 2010. Following the prison term, Haynes will serve five years on supervised release. She was also ordered to forfeit $810 cash to the United States.
Information obtained by law enforcement indicated that Haynes was responsible for the distribution of at least 1.5 kilograms (approximately three pounds) of methamphetamine in the Lincoln area. Haynes was found in possession of small amounts of methamphetamine in May and October of 2010. In January of 2011 Haynes was sentenced in Lancaster County District Court to three to eight years in prison resulting from one of those incidents. Haynes’s federal prison sentence was imposed to run concurrently with the remainder of her state sentence.
This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force which includes the Lincoln Police Department, Lancaster County Sheriff’s Department, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Police Department, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
