BOISE – Deanna Renee Moon, 61, of Boise, Idaho; Clark Douglas Fullmer, 50, of Boise, Idaho; and Lance Edward Chlarson, 32, of Marsing, Idaho were sentenced today for their role in a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy, announced U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson.  Moon pleaded guilty to one count of distributing methamphetamine on August 4, 2016, and was sentenced to 24 months in prison to be followed by three years of supervised release.  Fullmer pleaded guilty to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine on July 26, 2016, and was sentenced to 112 months in prison to be followed by five years of supervised release.  Chlarson pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and one count of distributing methamphetamine on July 26, 2016, and was sentenced to 140 months imprisonment to be followed by five years of supervised release.  All three individuals were also ordered by Senior U.S. District Judge Edward J. Lodge to forfeit $6,940 in cash proceeds.

Moon, Fullmer, and Chlarson each sold between 50 and 150 grams of actual methamphetamine to an undercover officer over a period of ten months, spanning from April 2, 2015 to February 9, 2016.  All three have prior felony convictions.  Moon had a prior conviction for possession of a controlled substance; Fullmer had prior convictions for grand theft, robbery, and possession of a controlled substance; Chlarson had prior convictions for possession of heroin, burglary, aggravated assault, and possession of a controlled Substance.

At sentencing this morning, Judge Lodge told the defendants, “I can’t tell how you how much hardship and pain we see with individuals before this Court whose lives have been destroyed by their addiction to methamphetamine.” 

These cases are the result of an investigation by the Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF).  The Organized Crime and Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF), includes the cooperative law enforcement efforts of the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Drug Enforcement Administration; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives; U. S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI); Internal Revenue Service-Criminal Investigation; and U.S. Marshals Service.  The OCDETF program is a federal multi-agency, multi-jurisdictional task force that supplies supplemental federal funding to federal and state agencies involved in the identification, investigation, and prosecution of major drug trafficking organizations.
