Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance (methamphetamine) was sentenced on July 12, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.
Darius Adrian Two Eagle, age 29, was sentenced to 360 months in federal prison, five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Two Eagle was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 6, 2020. He pled guilty on March 29, 2021.
The conviction stemmed from incidents beginning on an unknown date and continuing until approximately October 2020, when Two Eagle, along with at least one other person reached an agreement or came to an understanding to distribute 500 grams or more of a mixture of a substance containing methamphetamine in the District of South Dakota. Methamphetamine is a Schedule II controlled substance.
This case was investigated by the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force, and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Tamara Nash prosecuted the case.
Two Eagle was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
