For Possessing With Intent To Distribute Methamphetamine

FORT WAYNE-Jason Wallen, 41, of Kendallville, Indiana, was sentenced before United States District Court Judge Holly A. Brady following his plea of guilty to possessing with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine, announced Acting United States Attorney Tina L. Nommay.

Wallen was sentenced to 210 months in prison followed by 5 years of supervised release. 

According to documents filed in the case, on or about May 23, 2019, Wallen possessed with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine.  Because he had been convicted of several prior drug trafficking felonies, Wallen qualified as a career offender pursuant to the United States Sentencing Guidelines.
