Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance, was sentenced on June 14, 2021, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Antoine Joseph Metcalf, a/k/a Tony Metcalf, age 49, was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release, a $1,000 fine, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Metcalf was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 14, 2019.  He pled guilty on March 29, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from a conspiracy that occurred between January 2015 and December 2019.  During this time, Metcalf conspired with several others to distribute between 200 and 350 grams of methamphetamine on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation in central South Dakota.
