OSKALOOSA — An Oskaloosa man will spend a decade in prison after his conviction for conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, but that's not the whole story.
Chandler Prather Robbins IV, 31, was ordered to serve the sentence consecutively with another five years in prison for a related firearms charge. That means Robbins' sentences must be served one after the other, for a total of 15 years behind bars. He will also serve five years on probation following his release.
Robbins pleaded guilty to the charges in February. A co-defendant was sentenced to 11 years on the conspiracy charge.
The convictions followed an investigation into methamphetamine distribution in Omaha, Neb., and Council Bluffs. They were arrested in June 2012 as they transported more than “10 ounces of pure methamphetamine” for distribution.
