A Hopkinton felon who attempted to manufacture methamphetamine with his wife in June 2015 was sentenced yesterday to nearly twenty years in federal prison.

Jody Lee Davis, 47, from Hopkinton, Iowa, received the prison term after a November 16, 2015 guilty plea to one count of Attempted Manufacture and Aiding and Abetting the Attempted Manufacture of Methamphetamine.  At the guilty plea, Davis admitted he had three prior methamphetamine-related Iowa felony convictions when, on June 20, 2015, he tried to manufacture methamphetamine and helped his wife, Lisa Ann Davis, try to do the same.  Deputies with the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office arrested the Davises following the execution of a search warrant at their Hopkinton home on June 20, 2015.  In November 2015, a jury convicted Lisa Ann Davis of three federal methamphetamine-related charges. She is awaiting sentencing.

Davis was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade.  Davis was sentenced to 210 months’ imprisonment.  A special assessment of $100 was imposed.  He must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Davis is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Timothy L. Vavricek and Special Assistant United States Attorney Erin Eldridge and investigated by the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office.
