U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Ft. Pierre woman charged with Conspiracy to Distribute Meth and Distribution of Meth was sentenced on October 3, 2011, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Lori Seeking Land, age 43, was sentenced to 120 months custody and 8 years of supervised release.

Seeking Land was indicted by a federal grand jury in July 2010. She was convicted on July 20, 2011, on one count of Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine and two counts of Distribution of Methamphetamine as a result of a federal jury trial in Pierre.

The charges stem from an incident involving the intentional distribution and possession of 50 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance, in October 2008, November 2009, and January 2010.

This case was investigated by Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force and prosecuted by Special Assistant United States Attorney Ted L. McBride. The defendant was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal to begin serving her sentence.
