2 mins read

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Parker, South Dakota, man convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on October 14, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

David Lee King, age 53, was sentenced to 200 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

King was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 2, 2021.  He pled guilty on May 10, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from incidents beginning on an unknown date until on or about February 2, 2021, when King knowingly and intentionally combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed with others to knowingly and intentionally distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine, which is a Schedule II controlled substance.

This case was investigated by the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force, Homeland Security Investigations, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the Internal Revenue Service.  Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Tamara Nash prosecuted the case.
