Mobridge Man Sentenced on Drug Charge
Assistant United States Attorney
U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mobridge man charged with Distribution of a Controlled Substance was sentenced on July 11, 2011, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann. Winfield Eagleman, age 48, was sentenced to 24 months in custody and three years of supervised release.
Eagleman was indicted by a federal grand jury in July of 2010. The charge stems from Eagleman providing several pills of oxycontin, a Schedule II controlled substance, to another, in return for payment of Eagleman's prescription.
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ted L. McBride prosecuted the case.
Eagleman was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
