Man caught with 2 pounds of marijuana, cocaine, and cash will serve no jail time

MASON CITY – The North Central Iowa Narcotics Task Force arrested Cory Chodur on February 14th for one Class B felony count of Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver, one Class D felony count of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver, two Class D felony counts of Failure to Affix a Drug Tax Stamp.

The arrest came after an execution of a search warrant in December at Choder’s residence in which more than 2 pounds of marijuana, a large quantity of cocaine, and a large amount of cash was seized according to a media release.

Days before a pre-trial conference Choder’s lawyer and the prosecution entered in a negotiated voluntary guilty plea agreement.

At the sentencing hearing on Tuesday, November 13th, presiding District Court Judge Christopher C. Foy approved an application to dismiss the two Class D felony counts of Failure to Affix a Drug Tax Stamp.

Judge Christopher C. Foy then handed down a two deferred judgments on both remaining charges. The 1st deferred judgment was two an amended Class C felony charge of Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver. The 2nd deferred judgment was for the original Class D felony count of Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver.

Judge Christopher C. Foy imposed a 1,000 fine, but then suspended it for the Possession of Cocaine with Intent to Deliver charge.

Judge Christopher C. Foy ordered Choder to pay a $750 fine for the Possession of Marijuana with Intent to Deliver charge. In addition Choder must repay $451 in court costs and surcharges.

Instead of the potential 40 years in jail Choder had faced if convicted of all the charges he originally faced he has received 3 years of probation with the Iowa Department of Corrections. If he successfully completes the term of probation under a deferred judgment the drug distribution charges will be stricken from his criminal record.
