Omaha Man Sentenced to 15 Years for Methamphetamine Possession

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

Daniel E. Miller, 42, of Omaha, Nebraska, was sentenced on July 10, 2023, in federal court in Omaha after being convicted of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.  United States District Judge Brian C. Buescher sentenced Miller to 180 months’ imprisonment.  There is no parole in the federal system.  After his release from prison, he will begin a 10-year term of supervised release.

On February 20, 2020, Omaha police were dispatched to a bar for a woman who reported being assaulted by Miller. Officers ultimately arrested Miller.  During a search of his person, officers found 94 grams of methamphetamine in the pocket of his hooded sweatshirt. Forensic testing determined the methamphetamine to be 94 percent pure.

Because of a previous conviction in 2007 for willful injury in Pottawattamie County, Iowa, Miller received a federal sentencing enhancement for having a “serious violent felony” offense on his record.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Police Department.
