Sioux Falls Man Sentenced to 210 Months for Drug Offense

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announces that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine was sentenced on May 6, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Milton Lewis Poole III, age 28, was sentenced to 210 months in custody, to be followed by 5 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

An indictment was issued against Poole for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine by a federal grand jury on August 4, 2015.  He pled guilty to the charge on February 11, 2016.

In 2015, Poole was involved in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in Sioux Falls.  Poole distributed over 20 pounds of methamphetamine in Sioux Falls, and received several pounds of methamphetamine in the mail. 

This case was investigated by the Drug Enforcement Administration, the United States Postal Inspection Service, and the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer D. Mammenga prosecuted the case.

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