U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Trisha A. Havel, 40, of Lincoln, Nebraska, was sentenced today to two years and three months, (27 months), for possession with intent to distribute 50 grams or more of methamphetamine mixture by Senior United States District Judge John M. Gerrard. Following her release from prison, Havel will serve three years on supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

On March 30, 2021, a search warrant was executed at Havel’s Lincoln residence.  Officers found six baggies of methamphetamine for a total of approximately 56 grams (approximately two ounces).  Havel admitted she sold methamphetamine to help a small group of friends and support her own addiction.  She said she got the six baggies of methamphetamine from one of her sources the day prior to the search.

This case was investigated by the Lincoln Police Department and the Lincoln/Lancaster County Narcotics Task Force.
