CEDAR RAPIDS – An Iowa man who was involved in distributing pounds of methamphetamine throughout Northern Iowa was sentenced on November 13, 2019, to more than five years in federal prison.

Jose Ordaz, age 27, from Marshalltown, Iowa, received the prison term after an August 26, 2019 guilty plea to conspiracy to distribute at least 500 grams of a mixture and substance containing methamphetamine.

In a plea agreement, Ordaz admitted that beginning in December 2014, he became involved in a conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine.  During his involvement in the conspiracy, he was responsible for distributing at least eight pounds of ice methamphetamine.

Ordaz was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge Linda R. Reade.  Ordaz was sentenced to 70 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.

Ordaz 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).

    70 months for turning our children into zombies with this poison, how fitting. My brother in law got life, after 23 years he got sick, they let him out and 3 weeks later he died. They sure taught him a lesson.

    Maybe if going on a white water rafting ride for your life would amphetamines of any type be considered for use. And then if only pharmaceutical produced. This shit their smoking is taking decades off a life. It’s poison.
