The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa says 31 year old Chandler Prather Robbins, IV, of Oskaloosa was sentenced to 120 month imprisonment, to be served consecutively with 60 months in prison for possession of a firearm in relation to the drug trafficking offense. Robbins was also ordered to serve a five year term of supervised release following incarceration. Robbins pled guilty on February 8th to the charges of conspiring to distribute methamphetamine and possession of a firearm in the Omaha and Council Bluffs area.
Co-defendant, 35 year old Ray Allen Sutton of Council Bluffs was sentenced to 112 months imprisonment for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine. Sutton was also ordered to serve a four year term of supervised release following incarceration.
