For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that on August 28, 2015, William Nathan Chandler, 39, of Lincoln was sentenced to 10 years (120 months) in prison for conspiracy to distribute and possess with the intent to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing methamphetamine between about January 1, 2012, and April 4, 2014.  Following the prison term, Chandler will serve five years on supervised release.

Information provided to law enforcement indicated that Chandler was responsible for the distribution of at least 500 grams (approximately 18 ounces) of methamphetamine.  In April of 2014, a search warrant was executed at Chandler’s residence.  During the search, officers found slightly less than ¼ ounce of methamphetamine.  Chandler waived his rights and admitted that he had sold approximately ½ ounce of methamphetamine on that day prior to the officers’ arrival.  He said he had been using and selling methamphetamine for about six years and estimated he had sold a total of a pound in the year prior to the search.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln/Lancaster County Drug Task Force.
