Marshalltown Man Sentenced to More Than 12 Years in Federal Prison for Trafficking Ice Methamphetamine

A man who trafficked ice methamphetamine for months in 2015 was sentenced on March 26, 2018, to more than 12 years in federal prison.

Jason Nauman, age 36, from Marshalltown, Iowa, received the prison term after a December 5, 2017, guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

At the plea hearing, Nauman admitted that he agreed with others to traffic methamphetamine between the spring and fall of 2015.  Information at sentencing showed that during this time, Nauman trafficked more than 3 pounds of ice methamphetamine. 

Nauman was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge Linda R. Reade.  He was sentenced to 150 months’ imprisonment.  Nauman must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Nauman 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 Attorneys Patrick Reinert and Ravi Narayan.  The case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration and the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.  Court file information at https://ecf.iand.uscourts.gov/cgi-bin/login.pl.  The case file number is 17-CR-85.
