A Sioux Falls man has been sentenced to 84 months in Federal Prison, followed by four years of supervised release, following his conviction in U.S. District Court on Monday.  Charles Olson, age 48, was indicted back on March 9th for conspiracy that occurred between December 1, 2018 and October 16, 2019.

He was convicted of Possession and Distribution of a Controlled Substance, namely Methamphetamine.

As part of the conspiracy, prosecutors say Olson and his Co-defendants in the case, traveled to Denver, Colorado to pick up the methamphetamine.  During a traffic stop over 236 grams of methamphetamine, a scale, pipes and other drug related items were found. 

Upon his sentencing on Monday, Olson was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
