Illinois Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Passing Counterfeit United States Currency and Attempted Passing Counterfeit United States Currency
U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mobridge woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute and Possess With Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on January 4, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann. Amber Long Chase, age 32, was sentenced to 105 months in custody, 6 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.
Long Chase was indicted by a federal grand jury in February 2012. She pled guilty to one count of a superseding information in September 2012.
The conviction stems from Long Chase knowingly and intentionally conspiring to distribute and possess a mixture or substance containing methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance, in 2011.
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
Long Chase was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
