CEDAR RAPIDS – A man who was responsible for distributing pounds of ice methamphetamine while he was in state prison was sentenced May 17, 2019, to ten years in federal prison.

Cash Burch, age 35, from Des Moines, Iowa, received the prison term after a February 4, 2019, guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.

Evidence during the case established that while incarcerated in state prison for state felony drug charges, Burch became involved in a conspiracy to distribute ice methamphetamine. Once released from state prison, he continued his involvement in the conspiracy, ultimately distributing more than ten pounds of ice methamphetamine

Burch was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by Chief United States District Court Judge Leonard T. Strand. Burch was sentenced to 120 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve an eight-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

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