Man Convicted of Trafficking Methamphetamine and Possessing a Gun Sentenced to Over 20 Years in Prison

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 A man who sold methamphetamine out of his residence in Fairfax, Iowa, and possessed firearms was sentenced today to more than 24 years in federal prison.

Jason Richard Corey, age 54, formerly from Fairfax, Iowa, was convicted of conspiracy to distribute a controlled substance, distribution of a controlled substance, two counts of possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine, and possession of a firearm in furtherance of a drug trafficking crime during a November 2020 jury trial. 

The evidence at trial showed that Corey sold a quarter pound of methamphetamine to an individual in August 2019 at his home in Fairfax, Iowa.  Shortly after the sale, Corey was in a car that was stopped and found to have more than 70 grams of methamphetamine hidden in the bottom of a disinfectant wipes container and a bag inside the car.  Law enforcement then searched Corey’s home and found a half pound of methamphetamine and two firearms.  Additional evidence showed that Corey dealt more than 25 pounds of methamphetamine during 2019 and that one of his methamphetamine sources gave him two firearms for his protection.

Corey was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams.  Corey was sentenced to 295 months’ imprisonment.  He must also serve a five-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Corey 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 Emily K. Nydle and was investigated as part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program of the United States Department of Justice through a cooperative effort of the Cedar Rapids Police Department, the Marion Police Department, the Hiawatha Police Department, the Linn County Sheriff’s Office, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, and the Drug Enforcement Administration.
