A 46-year-old Council Bluffs woman was sentence for distribution of methamphetamine in U.S. District Court.

Lisa Marie Barrett was sentenced on the charge of distribution of 5 grams or more of methamphetamine.

Senior U.S. District Court Judge Robert W. Pratt sentenced Barrett to 60 months in
prison and 5 years of supervised release following her imprisonment. The Judge also ordered Barrett to forfeit $1,061 and various drug-related paraphernalia seized at the time of Barrett’s arrest on these charges. Barrett remains in the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending designation of the Federal Bureau of Prisons facility to serve her federal sentence.

Barrett was sentenced upon her plea of guilty to distribution of 6.8 grams of 95% pure
methamphetamine.

The charge arose from a SouthWest Iowa Narcotics Task Force investigation in which Barrett made two sales of methamphetamine to an undercover operative.

This case was part of a larger investigation conducted by the SouthWest Iowa Narcotics
Task Force.

The task force also rounded up three men in the sweep.

David Fisher was sentenced to 117 months imprisonment, plus 5 years supervised release; Nicholas Franks was sentenced to 133 months imprisonment, plus 5 years supervised release; and Steven Etherington was sentenced to 150 months imprisonment, plus 5 years supervised release.
