MASON CITY – Paul Dunbar, of Mason City, was sentenced this week to ten years in prison after plea bargaining to one possessions with intent to deliver methamphetamine charge. As part of the plea agreement two accompanying charges were dismissed.

Dunbar had been charged along with fourteen other defendants in July of this year as part of an investigation by the North Iowa Drug Task Force.

Dunbar had already been in the custody of the Cerro Gordo County Sheriff’s Department before the drug charges after escaping from Beje Clark. In July of this year Dunbar was charged with three counts of possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver. The charge stemmed from Dunbar’s delivery of methamphetamine on three occasions from July 20th to July 26th of 2010.

On Monday, November 14th, Dunbar was sentenced in Cerro Gordo County District Court by Colleen Weiland to a ten year prison sentence. Judge Colleen Weiland ordered the sentence to run concurrent with two five year prison sentences Dunbar had previously received in a 3rd offense OWI probation violation and a 3rd offense possession of a controlled substance violation.
