For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, Southern District of Iowa

DAVENPORT, IA – A Davenport man was sentenced yesterday to 27 months in federal prison for lying to a federal grand jury.

According to court documents and evidence presented at sentencing, Kaleb Bentley, 23, was called to testify as a witness before a federal grand jury in May 2021. While under oath, Bentley provided multiple false statements to the grand jury about a felony investigation involving multiple shots fired incidents and drug trafficking. Bentley’s false statements substantially interfered with the grand jury’s investigation.

After Bentley completes his prison sentence, he will be required to serve three years of supervised release. There is no parole in the federal system.

United States Attorney Richard D. Westphal of the Southern District of Iowa made the announcement. This case was investigated by the Davenport Police Department.
