Aredale woman sentenced to federal prison for perjury

gavel-justiceCEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa woman who committed perjury while testifying in federal proceedings was sentenced on March 31, 2015 to six months in federal prison.

Ashley Tufte, 29, from Aredale, Iowa, received the prison term after a January 9, 2015, guilty plea to one count of perjury.

In a plea agreement, Tufte admitted she lied while testifying before a federal grand jury.

Tufte was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Chief Judge Linda R. Reade. Tufte was sentenced to 6 months’ imprisonment and fined $1,000. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. She must also serve a 3-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Tufte was released on the bond previously set and is to surrender to the Bureau of Prisons on a date yet to be set.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Matthew J. Cole and investigated by the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
