Man found guilty of methamphetamine distribution
Cedar Rapids, Iowa – On Thursday, a man who had been accused of selling methamphetamine to a coworker at his workplace was found guilty of two counts of distribution of methamphetamine.
The prosecution presented evidence at the trial indicating that law enforcement agents cooperated with the employee in question in order to set up two controlled purchases of methamphetamine from Justin Michael Buehler, who is 39 years old.
Agents oversaw the deal and made audio recordings throughout the event. In 2007, Buehler was also found guilty of having been involved in the distribution of methamphetamine and was sentenced accordingly.
Buehler may get a maximum penalty of up to life in prison without the possibility of parole, a fine of $8,000,000, and a lifetime of supervised release.
