Oklahoma City Man Sentenced To 262 Months For Methamphetamine Distribution

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Jason Delaney Kiplinger, age 36, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma was sentenced to 262 months imprisonment and 5 years supervised release for Possession With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine, in violation of Title 21, United States Code, Sections 841(a)(1) and 841(b)(1)(A) and Title 18, United States Code, Section 2. The charge arose from an investigation by the Sallisaw Police Department, the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.

The Indictment alleged that on or about February 6, 2017, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant, did knowingly and intentionally possess with intent to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance.

“Methamphetamine distributors profit from their businesses while individuals, families, and communities are destroyed by their poisonous product. The defendant in this case possessed thousands of dosage units that would have arrived in various communities in Southeast Oklahoma if it weren’t for the work of the Sallisaw Police Department, Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, and the DEA,” said United States Attorney Brian J. Kuester. “Because of their thorough and professional investigation the members of this office were able to successfully prosecute the defendant thereby holding him accountable and ending his ability to distribute methamphetamine.”

The Honorable Ronald A. White, U.S. District Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, presided over the hearing. Assistant United States Attorney Christopher Wilson represented the United States. The defendant will remain in custody pending transportation to the designated federal facility at which the non-paroleable sentence will be served.
