United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on September 12, 2022, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.
Oleg Vasiliyvich Manuylo, age 30, was sentenced to 10 years and one month in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Manuylo was indicted for Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance by a federal grand jury in December of 2021. He pleaded guilty on June 27, 2022.
Manuylo knowingly and intentionally combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed together, with others known and unknown, to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture or substance containing methamphetamine, a Schedule II controlled substance, in the state of South Dakota and elsewhere.
This case was investigated by the Sioux Falls Police Department, Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Postal Inspection Service, and the South Dakota Highway Patrol. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Hodges prosecuted the case.
Manuylo was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
