COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa – On August 3, 2018, the Honorable Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger sentenced Dale Volney Freeman, 45, of Council Bluffs to 120 months in prison for possession of methamphetamine announced United States Attorney Marc Krickbaum. Freeman was also ordered to serve seven years of supervised release following his imprisonment and pay $100 to the Crime Victims’ Fund.
