A 45-year-old Lincoln man has been sentenced for his role in a Nebraska-based conspiracy to make methamphetamine.
Mark Skoda was sentenced last week to 24 years and four months in a federal prison. He must serve 10 years of supervised release after he leaves prison.
Skoda was found convicted of conspiracy to manufacture 500 grams
or more of methamphetamine. Prosecutors say four co-conspirators
accused Skoda of making the meth over a 20-month period at a rural
location just east of Lincoln.
In court, Skoda said the United States ought to find a better
treatment for people addicted to meth.
The conviction is Skoda's second connected to making meth. He's already served time in prison.
