For Immediate Release
Midland Woman Sentenced for Conspiracy to Distribute Methamphetamine
United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Midland, South Dakota, woman convicted of Conspiracy to Distribute a Controlled Substance was sentenced on August 8, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Angelica Dolloff, age 31, was sentenced to 60 months in federal prison, 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Dolloff was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2018. She pled guilty on February 20, 2019.
The conviction stemmed from a methamphetamine trafficking conspiracy that occurred between June 1, 2013, and continued through June 12, 2018, wherein Dolloff knowingly and intentionally combined, conspired, confederated, and agreed with others to distribute between 500 grams and 1.5 kilograms of methamphetamine. When arrested, Dolloff was unlawfully in possession of .40 caliber pistol ammunition.
Drug trafficking is an inherently violent activity. Firearms are tools of the trade for drug dealers. It is common to find drug traffickers armed with guns in order to protect their illegal drug product and cash, and enforce their illegal operations.
This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone. The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of its renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and local communities to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails
Drug Enforcement Task Force and the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation. Assistant U.S. Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
Dolloff was released on conditions pending placement at a Bureau of Prisons facility to begin serving her custody sentence.
