 Hamilton had over 20 prior criminal convictions, including convictions for assaulting police officers.

A Sioux City man who received methamphetamine which he intended to distribute was sentenced June 8, 2021, to more than 21 years in federal prison.

Levi Hamilton, age 40, from Sioux City, received the prison term after a guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine and possession with intent to distribute methamphetamine.

At the plea hearing, Hamilton admitted that beginning on August 25, 2020 and continuing to August 27, 2020, he and another received 2.7 pounds of methamphetamine via mail which they intended to redistribute around the Sioux City area.  Hamilton has an extensive criminal history with over twenty convictions.  His prior convictions include: serious assault on a peace officer; three theft convictions; two eluding a peace officer convictions; terrorism; resisting arrest; possession of a controlled substance; three eluding convictions; assault on a peace officer; domestic abuse; and serious assault.   

Hamilton was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand.  Hamilton was sentenced to 262 months’ imprisonment.  He must also serve a 5-year term of supervised release after the prison term.  There is no parole in the federal system.

Hamilton 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 Ron Timmons and investigated by United States Postal Inspection Service and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) Task Force consisting of the DEA; the Woodbury County Sheriff’s Office; the Sioux City Police Department; and the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement..
