DAVENPORT, Iowa – On Monday, October 23, 2017, and Tuesday, October 24, 2017, United States District Court Judge Stephanie M. Rose sentenced Burlington residents Robert Perkins, Sheldon William Krogmeier, and Victor Lamont Tate for their roles in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy, announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum.

 

Perkins, 46, was sentenced to 120 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute at least 50 grams or more of methamphetamine and ordered to serve five years of supervised release following his imprisonment. Krogmeier, 44, was sentenced to 96 months in prison for conspiracy to distribute at least five grams of methamphetamine and ordered to serve four years of supervised release following his imprisonment.
