Spencer man convicted of distributing crack

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

The United States Attorney Matt M. Dummermuth announced that a man who conspired to distribute and possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine pled guilty on June 7, in federal court in Sioux City.

Jeremy Corr, 27, Spencer, was convicted of conspiracy to distribute and possess with intent to distribute crack cocaine. In 2000, Corr was convicted of a felony drug offense in Hennepin County District Court, Minn.

In a plea agreement, Corr admitted that from October 2005 through December 2006, he conspired with others to distribute crack cocaine. On three separate occasions in the summer of 2006, Corr distributed crack cocaine to an individual cooperating with law enforcement.

Corr admitted that during late 2005 to July 2006, he made six to eight trips to Minneapolis, Minn., to obtain crack cocaine for distribution in the Spencer area. Corr further admitted he distributed about 500 grams of crack cocaine.

Sentencing will be held after a pre sentence report is prepared. Corr remains in the custody of the United States Marshal. Corr faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years imprisonment and a possible maximum sentence of 40 years' imprisonment, a $2 million fine, a $100 special assessment, and at least eight years of supervised release following any imprisonment.

The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Robert A. Knief and was investigated by the Iowa Division of Narcotics Enforcement, the Spencer Police Department and the Clay County Sheriff's Office.
