Kevin Schimerowski, 46, from Odebolt, Iowa, received the prison term after an August 28, 2013, guilty plea to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.

At the plea hearing, Schimerowski admitted his involvement in a conspiracy from about 2012 through April 2013 that distributed more than five grams of actual (pure) methamphetamine.  On three occasions in February 2013, Schimerowski distributed over five grams actual (pure) methamphetamine to individuals cooperating with law enforcement.

Schimerowski must also serve an additional 6 months’ imprisonment for revocation proceedings on a prior federal conviction of conspiracy to distribute at least 50 grams of methamphetamine.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office, Denison Police Department, Harrison County Sheriff’s Office, Sac County Sheriff’s Office, and the Iowa Division of Criminalistics Laboratory.
