Fort Thompson Man Sentenced For Distribution Of A Controlled Substance And Aiding And Abetting

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Distribution of a Controlled Substance and Aiding and Abetting was sentenced on October 27, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Emmanuel Harrison, a/k/a Manny Harrison, age 29, was sentenced to 5 months in custody, 3 years of supervised release, $1,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
         
Harrison was indicted for two counts of Distribution of a Controlled Substance by a federal grand jury on April 15, 2014.  He pled guilty to one count of Distribution of a Controlled Substance and Aiding and Abetting on July 29, 2014.
         
The conviction arose from an October 16, 2013, incident at Fort Thompson when Harrison knowingly and intentionally distributed a mixture and substance containing a detectable amount of methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance, and aided and abetted in the commission of the distribution.
         
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
         
Harrison was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
