CEDAR RAPIDS – A man who distributed multiple pounds of methamphetamine was sentenced today to more than ten years in federal prison.

Cody Jelinek, age 36, from Waterloo, Iowa, received the prison term after a November 2, 2018, guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

At the guilty plea, Jelinek admitted that between 2013 and 2016, he was involved in a conspiracy to distribute ice methamphetamine. During the course of the conspiracy, Jelinek distributed more than three pounds of ice methamphetamine.

Jelinek was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by Chief United States District Court Judge Leonard T. Strand. Jelinek was sentenced to 130 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a four-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Jelinek is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until he can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Lisa C. Williams and was investigated as part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) program of the United States Department of Justice through a cooperative effort of Federal Bureau of Investigation, Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, Tri-County Drug Enforcement Task Force (Waterloo Police Department; Cedar Falls Police Department; Waverly Police Department; Bremer County Sheriff’s Office; Black Hawk County Sheriff’s Office; LaPorte City Police Department; Evansdale Police Department; Hudson Police Department), Mid Iowa Drug Task Force (Marshalltown Police Department; Marshall County Sheriff’s Office; Tama County), and Dubuque Drug Task Force (Dubuque Police Department; Dubuque County Sheriff’s Office).
