A Sioux City man has pleaded guilty in federal court to conspiring to distribute methamphetamine.
53 year old Robert Skarin was convicted of conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine in a plea hearing Tuesday.
Skarin admitted that from the beginning of 2013 through April he distributed more than 50 grams of pure methamphetamine in the Sioux City area.
He also admitted that on at least two occasions he and another person traveled to Omaha to obtain methamphetamine for later distribution in Sioux City.
Skarin was arrested during an April 3rd traffic stop where a brown paper bag was found hidden inside his right sock containing over 80 grams of pure methamphetamine.
Skarin faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years' imprisonment.
