United States Attorney Steven Russell announced that Terrence Sherman, 37, of Macy, Nebraska, was sentenced today in federal court in Omaha, Nebraska, for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime.  United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Sherman to 180 months of imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, Sherman will begin a five-year term of supervised release.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
