Clark was caught transporting meth from Kansas to Iowa.
Jason Clark, 47, from Kansas City, KS, pled guilty and was sentenced on September 23, 2020, to more than 10 years in federal prison for conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.
Evidence at the hearing showed that Clark was involved in a distribution conspiracy that included more than 50 grams of methamphetamine. On or about May 18, 2019, in Woodbury County, Iowa, law enforcement conducted a traffic stop of Clark. During the traffic stop, officers observed a loaded handgun magazine in the vehicle. A subsequent pat-down of Clark revealed a knife in his pocket. Officers seized roughly a half-pound of methamphetamine from Clark’s vehicle.
Clark was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Clark was sentenced to 128 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. Clark is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.
