Oklahoma Woman Sentenced on Meth Conviction | USAO-SD

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Lawton, Oklahoma, woman convicted of Possession of a Controlled Substance was sentenced on November 5, 2020, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Jessi Barrera, age 34, was sentenced to time served equaling 150 days in tribal custody and 17 days in federal custody, one year of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $25.

Barrera was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 9, 2020.  She pled guilty on November 5, 2020.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on May 7, 2019, wherein Barrera was involved in a traffic stop in a rural area on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. Officers searched the vehicle and recovered a scale, pipes, baggies, butane fluid and butane torch, rolling papers, a marijuana grinder, syringes and a small amount of methamphetamine.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
