During a search warrant at Frye’s residence, located within 1000 feet of Nokomis Park and East Twin Park, law enforcement seized over 37 grams of pure meth. Frye further admitted that he intended to distribute this methamphetamine.
Frye was sentenced in Sioux City by United States District Court Chief Judge Leonard T. Strand. Frye was sentenced to 120 months’ imprisonment. He must also serve a 10-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.
