Fremont Man Sentenced to 5 years in Prison for Possession with the Intent to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Kurt Hansen, 34, of Fremont, Nebraska, was sentenced on October 2, 2014, to 5 years in prison by United States District Judge Joseph F. Bataillon. Hansen had previously pled guilty after he was caught with 12 grams of methamphetamine outside of a Fremont residence where agents were conducting a search warrant. Because Hansen possessed more than 5 grams of actual methamphetamine, he faced a mandatory minimum sentence of 5 years. After serving his sentence Hansen will be required to serve a Term of Supervised Release of 5 years.

This case was the result of an investigation by the III CORPS Drug Task Force.
