SIOUX FALLS — A Dimock woman has been sentenced to 10 years in federal custody following a conviction for conspiring for meth trafficking.

Jacqueline Muhs, 45, was sentenced May 18 by U.S. District Judge Karen Schreier, according to the U.S. Attorney's Office on Monday. Muhs was sentenced to 10 years in federal custody, followed by five years of supervised release. She was also ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Muhs was indicted by a grand jury on Jan. 7 and pleaded guilty on Feb. 24 to the crime.

The U.S. Attorney's Office said that for a period ending on Jan. 7, Muhs "knowingly and intentionally combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed together, with others known and unknown, to knowingly and intentionally distribute a mixture and substance containing 500 grams or more of methamphetamine.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, Drug Enforcement Administration, Sioux Falls Police Department, Minnehaha County Sheriff’s Office, and the Department of Criminal Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer D. Mammenga prosecuted the case.


She was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
