Sheldon Man Heading To Prison

Sioux City, IA (KICD)–A Sheldon man who conspired to distribute methamphetamine has been sentenced to ten years in federal prison.

At his guilty plea, 44-year-old Leroy Raffaelli admitted his involvement in a conspiracy that distributed at least 50 grams of actual (pure) methamphetamine from February 2011 through February 2013. On one occasion in January 2013, in Sheldon, Raffaelli distributed 9.76 grams of meth to an individual cooperating with law enforcement.  Raffaelli pled guilty to a count of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn S. Wehde and investigated by the Clay County Sheriff s Office, Iowa Department of Narcotics Enforcement, and Iowa Division of Criminalistics Laboratory.
