CEDAR RAPIDS – A man who sold crack cocaine near a park and an elementary school was sentenced August 12, 2019, to more than fifteen years in federal prison.

Mohamed Andrew Haidar, age 31, from Dubuque, Iowa, received the prison term after an April 8, 2019 guilty plea to distribution of a controlled substance near a protected location.

In a plea agreement, Haidar admitted he sold crack cocaine to a confidential informant on three separate occasions with one sale taking place near a park and an elementary school. Haidar also admitted that he possessed a pistol with an obliterated serial number in connection with his drug dealing. Haidar had previously been convicted of multiple felony drug offenses.

Haidar was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Haidar was sentenced to 188 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a six-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kyndra Lundquist and investigated by the Dubuque Drug Task Force.

HAIDAR, MOHAMED ANDREW
