Mission Man Sentenced to 5 Years in Prison on Meth Charge
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A South Dakota man has been sentenced to five years in prison for dealing methamphetamine.
Twenty-six-year-old Stephen Paul Jordan, of Mission, pleaded guilty in January to conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance.
Authorities say Jordan was "actively selling" meth on the Rosebud Indian Reservation for two years and had other individuals selling drugs for him.
An April 2015 search of a home in Mission discovered several bags of meth, marijuana, scales, drug paraphernalia, a .22 caliber rifle, and more than $1,600 in cash.
U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange says Jordan must serve four years of supervised release after his prison term is completed.
