Rosebud Woman Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on February 21, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Annie Rose Gasman, age 33, was sentenced to 27 months in custody, followed by 4 years of supervised release, a fine of $1,000, and a mandatory special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Gassman was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 14, 2017.  She pled guilty on December 1, 2017.

Between August 1, 2015, and June 14, 2017, Gassman knowingly and intentionally conspired with others to distribute methamphetamine in the District of South Dakota.

Gassman received distributable quantities of methamphetamine and distributed some of the methamphetamine in South Dakota. The individuals who provided methamphetamine knew that she intended to engage in further distribution.  Gassman admitted that it was reasonably foreseeable to her that more than 500 grams of methamphetamine would be distributed during the course of the conspiracy.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney SaraBeth Donovan prosecuted the case.

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