Faith Man Sentenced to 121 Months for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Faith, South Dakota, man convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on May 15, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Roy Antrim, age 40, was sentenced to 121 months in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, a fine of $7,500, forfeiture of $9,301 in U.S. currency and fourteen firearms, and a mandatory special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Antrim was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 14, 2016. He pled guilty on February 21, 2017.

Beginning in September of 2015, and continuing through June of 2016, Antrim knowingly and intentionally conspired with others to distribute between 1.5 and 5 kilograms of methamphetamine, a Schedule II Controlled Substance, in South Dakota.

Antrim admitted to receiving distributable quantities of methamphetamine and distributing it to others within South Dakota. Antrim also admitted to possessing fourteen firearms, and having firearms in his possession while distributing methamphetamine. Antrim further admitted to being involved in the distribution of methamphetamine with Kristina Lofton of Eagle Butte, South Dakota, who was convicted of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and sentenced in January of 2017.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney SaraBeth Donovan prosecuted the case.

Antrim was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
