Guyton and Omot were indicted by a federal grand jury on February 4, 2020.  Guyton pled guilty on October 13, 2020, and Omot pled guilty on April 29, 2021. 

The conviction stemmed from incidents beginning on an unknown date until on or about February 4, 2020, in the District of South Dakota, when Guyton and Omot knowingly and intentionally combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed together with each other, and others known and unknown, to intentionally distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine.  Methamphetamine is a Schedule II controlled substance. 

Guyton and Omot joined in an agreement or understanding to distribute methamphetamine.  They knew the purpose of the agreement or understanding and they could foresee that the quantity of mixture or substance containing methamphetamine exceeded 500 grams.

Guyton and Omot were immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service following their respective sentencings.
