United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Pierre, South Dakota, woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine was sentenced on December 14, 2020, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.
Tiffany Kay Frazier, n/k/a Tiffany Kay Castiglione, age 27, was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison, followed by four years of supervised release, a $1,000 fine, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Castiglione was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 10, 2019. She pled guilty on September 28, 2020.
The conviction stemmed from a conspiracy beginning in at least January 2017, continuing to September 10, 2019, wherein Frazier was involved with several others to distribute between 50 and 200 grams of methamphetamine in and around the Gettysburg and Pierre and Ft. Pierre communities in South Dakota.
This case was investigated by the Pierre Police Department, the Mobridge Police Department, and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
Frazier will self-report to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service on January 5, 2021.
