Mission Woman Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mission, South Dakota, woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on December 19, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Sarah Jean Roblez, age 27, was sentenced to 46 months in custody, 3 years of supervised release, a $1,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Roblez was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 15, 2016.  She pled guilty on September 27, 2016.

Between January of 2015 and March of 2016, Roblez and others conspired and agreed to knowingly and intentionally distribute methamphetamine, a Schedule II Controlled Substance, in South Dakota.  Roblez received distributable quantities of methamphetamine from other individuals who knew that she intended to engage in further distribution of the drug in South Dakota.  Further, Roblez provided methamphetamine to others knowing that they intended to engage in further distribution of the methamphetamine within South Dakota.  It was reasonably foreseeable to Roblez that at least 350 grams of methamphetamine would be distributed during the course of the conspiracy. 

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney SaraBeth Donovan prosecuted the case.

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