Mason City Man Back To Federal Prison On Revocation Proceedings

A man who violated multiple terms and conditions of federal supervised release was sentenced June 1, 2015, to more than four years in federal prison.

Antione Diandre Maxwell, 27, from Mason City, Iowa, received the prison term after a June 1, 2015, revocation of supervised release hearing.  Maxwell was previously convicted of conspiracy to distribute crack cocaine on August 17, 2007.  Maxwell was sentenced at that time to 84 months’ imprisonment with a five-year term of supervised release.

Maxwell admitted to violating several terms of his supervised release, including but not limited to: failure to participate in substance abuse treatment; failure to obtain employment; association with persons involved in criminal activity; and possession of marijuana and cocaine with intent to deliver.  The district court also found Maxwell violated the terms of his supervised release by the possession of a 9mm handgun while being a previously convicted felon.

Maxwell was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett.  Maxwell was sentenced to 53 months’ imprisonment.  The court ordered this term of imprisonment to be consecutive to the term of imprisonment he had previously been ordered to serve in the state of Iowa.   He must also serve a 10-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.  Maxwell 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 Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the U.S. Probation Office and assisted by the North Central Iowa Narcotics Task Force and Mason City, Iowa Police Department.
