Lower Brule Man Sentenced For Possession With Intent To Distribute A Controlled Substance
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lower Brule, South Dakota, man convicted of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on October 28, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Jason Long, age 44, was sentenced to time served (18.4 months), 3 years of supervised release, a $1,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Long was indicted for Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance by a federal grand jury on February 2, 2013. He pled guilty on August 12, 2014.
The conviction arose from an incident on July 28, 2012, in Lyman County, when Long knowingly and intentionally distributed and possessed with intent to distribute a mixture or substance containing a detectable amount of AM 2201, a Schedule I controlled substance.
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
