 Algona, IA (KICD) — An Algona man who conspired to distribute methamphetamine was sentenced to federal prison.

32-year old Ryan Hansen, received the prison term Monday of twelve years in prison after a September 6, 2013, guilty plea to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.

At the guilty plea, Hansen admitted his involvement from September 2012 through March 2013 in a conspiracy that distributed at least 500 grams of actual (pure) methamphetamine. Hansen admitted to obtaining ounces of methamphetamine in Minnesota on multiple occasions and distributing it in Iowa.

  Hansen was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Judge Mark W. Bennett, to 144 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. He must also serve a ten-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Hansen is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the Kossuth County Sheriff’s Office and the Iowa DCI Criminalistics Laboratory.
