Sioux Falls Man Sentenced in Drug Conspiracy
Assistant United States Attorney
US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Sioux Falls man charged with his part in a drug conspiracy was sentenced on April 23, 2012, by Chief US District Judge Karen E. Schreier. Beau Dyvig, age 22, was sentenced to 30 months in prison to be followed by 2 years of supervised release. He was also fined $500.
Dyvig was indicted for conspiracy to distribute or possess with intent to distribute marijuana by a federal grand jury on August 9, 2011. He pled guilty to the offense on January 30, 2012.
Dyvig joined an ongoing conspiracy to obtain and distribute marijuana in approximately August 2009 by making a trip to California to pick up a load of marijuana and return with it to South Dakota. During his involvement, Dyvig obtained and distributed 60 kilograms or more of marijuana in furtherance of the conspiracy. His involvement ended when he was arrested in July 2011.
This case was investigated by law enforcement agencies in Nevada and Wyoming, as well as the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, the South Dakota Highway Patrol, and the United States Drug Enforcement Administration. Assistant US Attorney John E. Haak prosecuted the case.
Dyvig was immediately turned over to the custody of the US Marshal.
